Like so many of us, this high school student has struggled with negative body image.

In this poignant video shared on The BULLY Project's Facebook page, Genny Zuniga describes her experience with negative body image and how she has been working to overcome it.

"I don't think people realize how truly easy it is to become someone who sees themselves as worthless," she explains in the video. "Whether I felt too fat or too stupid or too ignorant or too loud, I always felt too something and not enough another thing. Body image is hard."

In the video description, Genny reveals that she has deal with negative body image for as long as she can remember. The reason she made the video, which has now been viewed over 2 million times, was to let other people struggling with body image issues know that they are not alone. "If you have no support, let me know and i will be your bathtub full of support," she concluded. "I love all of you, please let me know what you think!"
