What does “body positivity” mean to you? How has your body image changed over time? How does your body image play a role in your identity or even in your daily life?

Body positivity is a concept that is new to me. Through this photography opportunity, I hope to understand this concept and its significance better.

Over time, my body image has remained relatively consistent, but I have developed a greater appreciation for myself. I’ve come to embrace my current hairstyle, which suits my preferences and simplifies my daily life.

My body image has played a significant role in shaping my identity. As I’ve grown more comfortable with myself, I have gained a clearer sense of who I am. This newfound confidence has allowed me to navigate various spaces with greater ease and authenticity.

How has body image affected your mental and emotional health? What’s something that helps you feel comfortable in your own skin?

Fortunately, I am always comfortable in my own skin.

Is there a specific message that you’d like to convey by participating in this project?

Love myself.
