We asked writer, model, and student Paloma Elsesser to be a part of the What's Underneath Project because of her incredibly candid and outspoken struggles that she has had with racial identity, body image, as well as alcohol and drug abuse. Today, not only is she dedicated to preserving her proud sobriety, but by rocking crop tops and any type of clothing she wants with fiery confidence and intelligence, Paloma shows girls that you don't need to be a stick figure to be beautiful.
