“I think women have to own their own bodies and you do everything you can to stay healthy and happy and that’s all you can do,” Anasta began.

“If people want to perceive that in whatever way they can but as girls, I say we all just stick together, we all support one other and we all be happy and healthy and do the best we can for our bodies.”
