Episode 22: Owning Our Bodies and Our Value with CeCe Olisa

CeCe Olisa Point of Pain Podcast Nitika Chopra

Hello loves.

CeCe Olisa is the Co-Founder of theCURVYcon and one of New York’s top ten fashion bloggers. She’s been featured in everything from Cosmo to Marie Claire to InStyle to Refinery29 and more!

CeCe has such a vibrant spirit that she brings into her conversations about everything from God to fashion to music on her Instagram and it’s really beautiful to see. Shortly after meeting CeCe for the first time, I was invited to attend theCURVYcon and it was truly a life-changing experience.

In this episode, CeCe and I discuss how I look to her content about owning our bodies when I need support in this area with my own body, her perspective on mindset and how it’s passed down from our parents, the importance of letting go of our shame around working with therapists on a sliding scale for payment, how her relationship with God plays a part in her work, the power of theCURVYcon for women who often feel underserved in the fashion and beauty industries, and more!

The Pain Points We Explore In This Episode:

  • The formative experiences in kindergarten that showed CeCe her body was different from her peers
  • The inappropriate experience with a doctor around her weight that caused CeCe to start dieting at the age of twelve
  • The uncomfortable reason CeCe put off starting therapy even though she firmly believed in the idea of it
  • The transition CeCe made from thinking she wouldn’t be successful because she was a “tall, fat, black girl” to now being successful because of that
  • The balance CeCe had to find between not feeling ashamed about the money she makes while also not having it be her main focus either
