Angel Dei is the queen of body positivity!
Careers in the limelight, like being a social media content creator for example, are notorious for having many critics. Some might even say that it’s inevitable for people to pick you apart if you choose this path; meaning, it’s inevitable for people to make comments about your life—especially when it comes to physical appearance. And it’s so easy to get fazed and fixated on these comments, but Angel Dei is one of the many vocal internet personalities who advocate for body positivity.
Angel has been very open about her journey to self-love. In one of her vlog segments, called #TopicOfTheDEI, she talked about how she gained her confidence. She said that she, too, has her fair share of insecurities, and there are times that her self-esteem gets the best of her. Like the true queen she is, she reminded her viewers that you should embrace your flaws and everyone has their own imperfections—what matters most is how you view yourself.
She’s very open about getting her nose done.
