What do you see when you look in the mirror?

what I see

It’s such a simple question – “What do you see when you look in the mirror?” and yet, at least for me, such a difficult one. It’s also the key question of the What I See Project, a global online platform aiming to amplify women’s voices by asking women around the globe to record their answer to the question above.

It was an easy decision to say yes when I was asked if I wanted to contribute myself, as the project brings together two topics that are very important to me: feminism and body image.

I think I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ve massively struggled with my own body image for many years. It is still difficult for me to look at myself at all in a mirror or accept the way I look. Have a look at the video (which, point in case, I find nearly unbearable to watch) I recorded for What I See to find out a little more.

As the project is also about female diversity and different voices, head over to the next embassador of the project, brilliant blogger Ashanti Jason aka Adorn Girl.

Also, why not contribute your own voice? You can still record your own answer, simply record a video via your phone or webcam, or write down your story or simply send a tweet.

    I think you’re lovely looking Lena! I remember you mentioning on this blog a long time ago that you were shy of wearing your 60s style in public, but were making an effort to be your ‘authentic self’ – those words really resonated with me. Thank you for sharing your vulnerability, it has helped me to be less fearful too šŸ™‚
