Loving our own body is very important to our happiness, but the journey can be long and difficult. This process is known as “Body Positivity”, which preaches self-acceptance and the feeling of caring and generosity with ourselves.
Everyday, we are imposed on “perfect” bodies that can further damage our self-esteem. That’s why Her Campus has selected some non-standard influencers who give a self-esteem lesson to inspire you. Enjoy it!
