Eda Marbury is a 25-year-old woman from Missouri, USA, who inspires us all with her skills and moves!

Having struggled with her weight, Eda decided to try pole dancing. At first, she felt she wasn’t good at it, in fact she was even afraid to climb the pole. Self-doubt and low self-esteem prevented her from it, as she felt terrified with the experience of dancing on a pole, in a room full of mirrors.

However, the plus-sized woman surprised her friends, her family and above all herself with her courage and dedication and now even hopes to enter competitions to showcase her skills. Pole dancing hasn’t just changed the way she feels about her body and self, it has changed the way she feels about her appearance.

Eda now wants to drop her weight to 200lbs and compete in state pole dancing competitions, proving every woman who struggles with body issues that they can do it too! “I’ve come so far in the past two years. I feel way more confident, way more sexy, way more beautiful. I feel like I’m worth it. I never thought I would be capable of the things I have achieved,” she explains, and all we have to add is, GO EDA!
