06 Jun I wish everyone could know they are “good enough”
Pictures in advertising, especially in the fashion industry, are largely manipulated, unrealistic and often represent a stereotype. Young girls and women who do not see people like themselves in the media begin to feel there is something wrong with them and that they are not “good enough”. This can lead to self esteem and mental health issues.
I started the #EveryBodyInAds campaign http://www.trinketsjewellery.com/jewelryblog , using a diversity of women in my advertising, to do something to about this. After all representation matters!
I wish that no-one would feel that they are not good enough. What makes you happy? Do some of that! It’s a step in the right direction. Oh, and don’t change yourself for anyone else!
