AM­BER

Cosmopolitan (India) - - BODY LOVE -

Co-mod­er­a­tor at “I chose body im­age blog­ging be­cause as a fat woman in a so­ci­ety ob­sessed with thin peo­ple, pos­i­tive body im­age is some­thing I’m not al­lowed to have. It’s such an im­por­tant and over­looked topic. My blog makes peo­ple ques­tion where neg­a­tive body im­age comes from. Women are made to feel from a very young age that their big­gest worth and most valu­able as­set is their body. And that’s sim­ply not true. By tak­ing the pres­sure off the need to look per­fect, peo­ple can fo­cus on is­sues that are more im­por­tant. It helps peo­ple dis­cover that the hate they feel for their bod­ies is not from within, but, in­deed, from trace­able and real out­side sources.”
