What Do You See When You Look In The Mirror?
It's an online, global project that aims to gather real life and honest stories from women everywhere about their achievements, struggles and inner thoughts in response to the question "What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Every video (there's hundreds!) on the website and YouTube channel is completely unique, just like the women themselves. Lots of women on the site talk (including myself) talk about body confidence, emotional strength, mental health, their passions in life and challenges that they've overcome.
It's been an honour to be part of such an amazing project! I've found it very uplifting and inspirational watching some of the other videos and it also makes me feel pretty damn proud to be a woman! With the project being global, I like that it demonstrates perfectly that no matter what age, shape, size or colour we are, all women everywhere will relate to many of the thoughts expressed in this project.
Be sure to follow the project on Facebook & Twitter (#WhatISeeProject) to see each new daily video during the launch campaign spanning from 27th August to October 1st 2013 and check out tomorrow's video by Carmina MasOliver at http://carminamasoliver.com.
You can upload your own video if you want to, and if you do so within the launch campaign you will be in with a chance of attending the launch event taking place at the London Science Museum in October.
After the launch campaign to raise awareness of the project, the short films of 10 ambassadors will be released. The ambassadors are all very strong and successful women, including well known journalists, academics, athletes and CEOs. Through both ambassadors and communicators, the campaign aims to highlight real female role models, the everyday heroines whom other women can relate to and admire, and amplify voices that would otherwise go unheard.
Here's the trailer for the project:
Since the 11th of May 2011, I have gone from being obese to healthy, rescued myself from diabetes and hypertension and taught myself how to cook along the way. I've gone from being the teen that bunked off PE lessons, to the adult whose hobbies include lifting weights, yoga, dance and mixed martial arts.
