Name: Treshonia’s been surprised by beauty facts from around the world!
Troop name: 150th Barbados Ranger Guides
Country: Barbados

Hi I am Treshonia! Today I participated in Session one of Free Being Me and had a great time, learning about body confidence and how different parts of the world view beauty and what they consider beautiful! Some of them I found to be quite extraordinary, but everyone is entitled to their traditions and customs and possibly they may find our beauty concepts strange as well…

I am quitting Gloss Magazine because I cannot stay here and we are creating an image that can destroy girls and their self-esteem, causing them to think they are not good looking or good looking enough and are not part of the Ideal of a perfect woman!!

Beauty facts (7-10s and 11-14s) and Gloss magazine (11-14s)  are both in session one of Free Being Me

    Treshonia the saying we are all unique is very true, and while we may do similar things, being ‘you’ and loving ‘you’ is very important. I like the fact that you acknowledge that people are entitled to their traditions.
