Forgot to post before midnight, but here is the first selfie of 2016. I made a goal to take a selfie everyday this year because I want to promote positive body image and accept who I am. I am a disabled, heavyset author living in Southern California and hoping to make a name for myself as an author and YouTuber. The support you guys showed me last year has given me the confidence to go after my dreams and to accept myself completely. Join me in making 2016 a year of acceptance, love and a year we accomplish great things individually and as a community. Share your selfies with me by tagging me @authoranthonyavina and using the hashtag #AuthorAAvinaSelfieaDay2016 or just #authoranthonyavina #selfie #selfies #selfiechallenge #selfieaday #selfieaday2016 #positive #positivebodyimage #acceptance #goals #avinavlogs #selfienation


Anthony Avina, (Born March 1990), is an author, a journalist, and a blogger. Born in Southern California, he has battled through injuries, disabilities, moves back and forth across the country, and more, yet still maintains a creative voice that he hopes to use not only to entertain but to inspire hope in even the darkest situations. He writes short stories and novels in several genres, and is also a seasoned journalist for the online magazine, On Request Magazine, as well as the popular site TheGamer. Having grown up reading the books of Dean Koontz and Stephen King, they inspired him to write new and exciting stories that delved into the minds of richly developed characters. He constantly tries to write stories that have never been told before, and to paint a picture in your mind while you are reading the book, as if you could see every scene of the book as if it were a movie you were watching. His stories will get your imaginations working, and will also show that in spite of the most despairing and horrific situations, hope is never out of reach. He am always writing, and so there will never be a shortage of new stories for your reading pleasure.
