But Mazzaei didn’t always feel confident. Growing up, she was often bullied at school for her weight. And a boyfriend broke up with her because of her size.
“I hated myself,” she said. “I hated school. There were so many times where I skipped school, the bullying was so bad.”
But when Mazzaei turned 23, she started “finding inspiration” online, and that’s when she started her Instagram modeling career under the name “Jewelz.”
“I got [to social media] and I found self-love,” she said. “And being confident is the greatest gift that I have been given.”
