Adult Louisa, still entirely too good for you.
(via Facebook)

As a kid, Louisa Manning was bullied about her weight and body hair by students in her class . Her classmates thought it was clever to call her "manbeast," a play on her last name. Those words made an impression on 12-year-old Louisa, who developed an eating disorder and struggled to maintain her self-confidence over the next few years.

Now 22 and a student at Oxford University, Louisa was surprised when she ran into one of the boys who bullied her at school last week, and he asked her on a date.
