Social media users are frequently bombarded with messages from so-called successful "models" promoting diet culture, unrealistic body standards and the pressure to hide or disguise what we view as our unacceptable true selves. As a society, we must work together to discern truth from the media's false standards of perfection.
Join us for an interactive event where you will:
-Hear from Renfrew alumni and supports as they share their own personal stories of truth
-Explore the messages you receive about how you should look, act and feel
-Debunk the diet culture's lies and promises
-Discuss the impact social media has on our body image and self-worth
-Identify positive influencers that will enhance our pride, respect and self-compassion for our authentic selves
