this is a public service announcement i created for my senior project, "The Butterfly Campaign." it's a body image/eating disorder prevention campaign. i've struggled my whole life with my body & finally came to a breaking point last year. i don't want any girl to ever have to go through everything that i did. i want every girl to know, you're beautiful. the stupid number on the scale, the number on the tag of your clothes, the stupid things people say, society, these things don't define you. it's time for change. it's time that we stop obsessing over every calorie, every carb, every hateful word, every small flaw... it's time to start embracing our beauty, despite the things we don't like, because we are beautiful, we are all beautiful. it's time to forget our insecurities and embrace confidence, laughter, and love— of ourselves and who we are. i am not the size of my jeans or the malicious words people say. you are not these things. please, join me & start the change, because you are worth it, you are important, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!

*butterflies are a symbol of change. i chose them to be symbol of my project because i know we can be the change.

i'd like to thank my mentor, tanya, for all of her support, michael from mOcean, for lending his studio, time, and advice. & to his wife, franchon for her support. to tanya's husband, don & my momma for helping with filming, & to josh for helping me with sound. & colleen, jessica, alyona, alex, jasmine, kathy, and schaedyn for being in my video, and showing that they are not defined by any of those things, they are beautiful.
