My name is Vic, I’m a 23-year-old Manc and everything I do in life is for one reason; to teach women of every shape, size, colour, and ethnicity to fricken LOVE themselves.
But where did that passion come from?
I trained as a dancer for my WHOLE life. I was destined to dance. At 16, I was accepted into Professional dance college and I signed with a commercial dance agent. I was a perfectionist. Everyone in my life could see that trait in me, but myself (mainly because I thought a ‘perfectionist’ would have a tidy bedroom).
When I was 18 I became hyper-aware of my body. I felt I was only going to be successful if I had 6 pack abs, and got rid of the bulk in my thighs. Of course, I fully committed to achieving what I classified as ‘perfect’, and this very rapidly turned into an obsession with the scales, an eating disorder and a very depressed me.
‘I lost myself in the pursuit of perfection’
During my recovery, my passion took a detour. I felt like I needed to make a difference in the way women thought and spoke about their bodies. I wanted to stop women feeling like they had to conform to societies idea of perfection; and instead, create their own idea of perfect.
Fast forward to today, I use my platform (@victorianiamh) to spread my message to over 80,000 people; and I am the CEO of the global movement #Girlgains (find out more about The Girl Gains) alongside my two best friends Tally and Zanna.
My work on social media has allowed me to collaborate with some incredible brands such as Lucozade sport & Fit Water, Puma, Holland& Barrett to name a few. I have featured on ITV’s This Morning, The Telegraph, OK magazine, Pro Sieben, Manchester Evening News, BBC Radio 1 And I am also the co-host of the BBC 5 Live’s Fit&Fearless podcast series.
This website is my little space on the internet to blog about my daily thoughts, my tips for body confidence, and give you some ways to train your body and your mind. I hope you love it 🙂
Lots of love,
