More Than a Body
The Apryl Michelle Brown Story

By Apryl Michelle Brown

The Price of “Not-Enoughness” For Apryl Michelle Brown Almost COST her HER LIFE!

As a beautiful, unique, young girl, Apryl Michelle Brown created a mantra choreographed by years of childhood trauma: “I’m going to buy me some butt when I get older and make a lot of money.” Little did she know her mantra—that beast of “not-enoughness”—would lead her down a dark tunnel of shame, pain, and loss. It landed her face down on a child’s bed, enduring unimaginable pain, as she permitted an unlicensed practitioner to pump illegal silicone into her buttocks, or “butt cheeks” as Apryl likes to call them. This catapulted Apryl into a medical nightmare that ultimately claimed her arms, her legs, and even her butt cheeks. She now lives as an ambassador of humility and grace, and is committed to helping others conquer their internal beasts, and stand tall in the presence of their “enoughness.”
