A fitness blogger has shared photographs of her hairy legs and armpits in the hope it will inspire others to embrace their natural beauty.

Morgan Mikenas has more than 7,000 followers on Instagram, where she posts about her incredible fitness regime and transformation after she took up bodybuilding.

The fitness fan recalled an incident at school, when she was aged 11 or 12, where other girls laughed at her hairy legs while she was wearing gym shorts.



Morgan said she was so upset, she ran straight home to her mum and cried – asking if she could teach her how to shave.

But last year, she decided she wanted to embrace the natural look and ditched razors for good. She hasn’t shaved her armpits or legs since the beginning of 2016.

In one Instagram post, she said: “What is beauty anyway? To me… it’s to be beautiful before someone else told you what beautiful is supposed to be.. Just as you are, you are beautiful.

“Being different is normal. Being different is a good thing! It is what makes you who you are. Being different is freedom. You are one of a kind, and that is your power. Find what makes you stand out.”


“What makes you different? Embrace that and just be happy.”
