Social Media inspires us. It gives us the opportunity to connect with people– across status lines and across the world. It takes us places we’ve never been and allows us to speak with people we’ll never know. It lets us be discovered. It helps us be seen, by family, friends, and followers. It tells us what’s beautiful, current and cool. And it lets us speak our truth to anyone willing to listen.
Join us for the Self Love in the Age of Social Media panel to hear how three influencers use their platforms to tell their stories and promote self-love and acceptance in an age where we are bombarded with more images of beauty than ever before.
