Beccy Quinn (Actress Robyn) is a body positive actress and model living in Los Angeles. She has always had a passion for entertainment, and after she received her degree in Film from the Academy of Art University, she worked with several production companies in the San Francisco Bay Area. Modeling and the body positive movement came as a surprise to her. She knew that other people judged her for her size, but it never truly bothered her; until she found that her weight was keeping her from landing any roles aside from the comedic relief. Beccy was beyond excited to find a growing group of like minded people that supported body positivity. She stands with them proudly through very project she works on. Her goal with her work now, is to include everybody’s stories. “We’re all people. We all have a voice to be heard.”
