The film Pam is about An overweight girl goes to the gym -- and falls prey to a toxic trainer. This was inspired by my weight loss story and the self-hate I had toward my body image. I want to share this story because there aren't enough films that have plus-size actors as the leads. I wanted them to feel seen and to know that they aren't alone. That self-love no matter what you look like leads to happiness.
