Millie Elder-Holmes says she’s an ambassador for "self-love and acceptance" and has recently bared all in a Facebook Live video she posted to her Clean Eatz NZ page.

In the anonymous Q&A session, Millie shares some personal information about her younger self. 

When a fan asks what her favourite thing about herself is, she answers:

"Probably my ability to have changed my mindset because when I was young I was a real b****. Like straight up."



“I’m not going to lie about it. I was a f**king little b****. Like a little snobby princess b****. And I used to judge people a lot.”

“Then after I went through my addiction and all of my really embarrassing things publicly… I learnt how to eat a little bit of humble pie and I understood how it felt to have people be mean to you on such a huge scale and now I really empathise for others and how they feel so that’s my favourite thing about myself.”

“If someone is being mean to me, I just don’t think ‘oh you’re a c***’, I think, ‘okay this person is obviously going through something’ and it’s not for me to like then lash back out to them.”

Ahead of the Facebook Live Q&A Millie also took to her Instagram to share 20 facts about herself that her fans might not know:
