    Krys Nicole sought to create a movement and name that would forever demolish the negative connotations given to plus-size women. She started with a blog, established in2008, that highlighted full-figured women and men of the entertainment industry. During the success of her blog, Krys Nicole wrote a motivational book (“I’m Not Fat, I’m Thicksational ®”) that talked about the discrimination and pain she felt, as well as the lessons she learned growing up as a thicker girl. Thus, Thicksational became more than just a blog, but a brand with a book, dating site and apparel. Thicksational is an energy – a term that represents that you are confident, relentless, thick and sensational. Being Thicksational shows that you are removing all barriers, no longer accepting those dreadful comments that you are cute, pretty, confident or successful for a “big girl,” but accepting that you are cute, pretty, confident, and successful because that’s who you were meant to be! This brand is for any girl or woman who has been called: Fat! Obese! Large! Chubby! Big! Whatever society or people you know want to call you, the fact is you are here to stay! Get your apparel and check out the sales at www.thicksational.com !

    Jamese Basken, artistically known as Grace, is a spoken word artist and founder of the Grace Project. Grace began writing poetry at the tender age of 13. She used writing to escape the traumatic experiences she faced in her childhood. However, as she got older God began to reveal to her that her poetry was not just for her but would be a vessel for Him and her poetry would be used to show people that their situation does not determine their destination. Grace started performing at 21 and from there she has used her platform to continue to be an asset to hurting young women and men.
