THIS MONTH’S BEST

MODEL BE­HAV­IOUR I was so im­pressed with Kyla Jamieson af­ter read­ing her ar­ti­cle, “True Self” [ELLE Life], in your April is­sue. It’s a sad re­al­ity that those in the modelling world teach beau­ti­ful young women that they’re not pretty un­less they’re anorexic. Shame on them for not giv­ing these girls the strength and guid­ance they need at that age and for not show­ing them that they are beau­ti­ful re­gard­less of the num­ber on the scale. For­tu­nately, Kyla rec­og­nized the un­favourable side ef­fects of modelling be­fore it was too late. Ku­dos to her for shar­ing and to ELLE Canada for print­ing such a heart­felt story.
