Hi, I’m Vanessa, I am beyond thrilled to serve as one of the ambassadors for the New York Chapter. When I first heard about Fat Girls Hiking, I was like yes! My next thought was “How can I be a part of this?”  When I heard that Summer was coming to New York I jumped at the chance of hiking along side of her. I had such a great experience hiking,  I didn’t feel intimidated or rushed or that there was a set goal other than enjoying your body in nature.
I want to feel this way forever and help others feel the same.
