You’re not alone.
It’s easy to look at your favorite influencers — like Emma Chamberlain, who has nearly 9 million Instagram followers, a wildly successful Youtube channel, a fashion partnership with Louis Vuitton, and her very-own coffee brand — and think they’ve got it all. But just like the rest of us, the famously relatable funnygirl often struggles with maintaining a positive personal body image.
During a recent interview, Emma opened up about how growing up on social media negatively affected her sense confidence, and ultimately created an ongoing eating disorder. Since then, she’s vowed never to use photo-manipulating software like Facetune, and refuses to advertise weight-loss products to her young audience. You go, girl!
“I literally have struggled with that my whole life. Almost every person I’ve met has had some form of an eating disorder…I’ve had…so many…I’ve been fully not at a healthy weight and I thought I was obese multiple times. It’s awful,” she shared.
This isn’t the first time one of our favorite stars has opened up about the negative effects of social media. Lilia Buckingham encouraged readers to think before they post in this inspiring, self-written essay!
