Though the 26-year-old admitted that her entire identity isn’t strictly limited to her curves, Gabi Fresh credits her parents and her alma mater, Mount Holyoke College, for inspiring her blog.
“I think my identity is very complicated. I identify as a black women, but I’m actually bi-racial. My mom is white and my father is black,” she explained. “They both influenced me, not really in terms of fashion, but in terms of my self-esteem. They had a large influence in making sure I felt great about myself from a young age. But what really pushed it over the edge I would say, was in college. I went to an all woman’s college, and it was very much about learning to grow and love yourself as a woman.”
