Body positivity program helps students appreciate their bodies and find a sense of community
Determined to portray bodies in their true unedited selfs, one student has started a photo campaign that advocates for body positivity.
A beautiful flower arrangement sent from a seemingly perfect boyfriend, toned and fit bodies posing in front of a glamorous beach on the French Riviera, big smiles on a Southern Californian pier — these are just some of the vibrant images that we are constantly scrolling past on our Instagram feeds at any given moment.
We spend a lot of time scrolling. According to a Mediakix study conducted last year, it’s estimated that the average person will spend a total of five years and four months on social media within their lifetime.
The RSU organized Ryerson’s first-ever Style Expo in the Student Learning Centre to encourage students to relax during the difficult month of March.
