Claire's History With Weight and Bullying
Growing up, Claire was always bigger than her peers, and she was six-feet tall by the time she was 12. Claire said she considered herself chubby and was bullied a lot because she wasn't like every other girl.
"I was called a giant, whale, and Bigfoot all while in primary school, which made me hate myself at the age of only 8, which then contributed to my body image and food issues," Claire said. Her first year of high school was terrible for her; she said she was taller than all the boys and girls in her class, and the bullying got worse.
