Campaign: To promote healthy attitudes to body image

When I was younger, I developed eating disorders as a result of low self-esteem.

I used to be critical of myself because I didn’t look like the people I’d see in magazines.

Back then, I didn’t realise that beauty came in all shapes and sizes.

Now, I’m in recovery, and with Fixers, I want to help promote healthy attitudes to body image.

I want to inspire other young people to feel positive and confident about their appearance.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

 

Abbi Winn Adam Power
Benjamin Venson David Reaney
Ellie Hodgson Emily Doran
Emily Ross Harvey Broadbent
Kam Adams Karine Harber
