Katie Willcox Explains Why You Hate Your Body and Why It’s Not Your Fault
Using her 15 years of experience in the modelling industry, Katie strives to change the game of self-love by approaching the topic of body image from an intellectual viewpoint vs. an irrational and emotional one via her platform Healthy is the New Skinny. By breaking down the “skinny” beauty ideal and exposing its origins, agenda, and harmful effect it is having on society, Katie empowers us to choose personal health over the beauty ideals implemented by the media. Tune in to hear Katie’s top tips and tools to create lasting change on your journey to self-love!
