In a shocking admission in her new i-D Magazine interview, Nelson reveals:

Nelson's interview is a part of i-D's series called "Size Matters," which takes an in depth dive into the harmful "body shaming" world we live in today, and the brave individuals stepping up to change this.





After the relentless unhealthy comments made about her weight, Nelson knew something had to be done. In September, she started a Change.org petition for progress.

The petition urges the UK government to follow the lead of their neighbor, France, and criminalize the use of models who are dangerously thin.

As explained by Nelson in her petition, "Earlier this year France became the latest country to vote to criminalise the use of models who are dangerously thin. Those breaking the law face fines and up to six months in jail."

Nelson currently has 93,652 supporters, but still needs more to reach her 150,000 goal. Sign her petition to show your support for healthy bodies worldwide.
