They didn't think it was possible because they just had never seen it, but when they come to class, they see me, and they think 'I'm not going to be only overweight person, so now I'm a lot less embarrassed about trying.'"

She's no longer the "fat kid in gym," but by simply existing, Roz is showing other plus-size women a way forward, fat shamers be damned.
