Your Body, Your Image

A Kol Koleinu Teen Feminist Fellowship Project

Kol Koleinu Project Your Body, Your ImageWe are creating a video centered around body image of people of all genders. What makes this video special is that it will focus on the healing process that all people experience when struggling with their body image. Given that struggles with body image are especially prevalent today, we want to spread the message of self-love and bridge the gap between the conversation surrounding men and women’s body image.

Here are the guidelines, questions, and a background into the project:

We are creating a short video compiled of stories about body image and we want to hear from you! Given the ubiquity of social media, feeling confident in your body can sometimes be all too difficult. Although sometimes it may feel like you are the only one feeling self-conscious, you are not alone. We hope to make this video to give people an opportunity to share their stories regarding body image and in turn, spread the message of self-love. We truly appreciate any and all participation!
