Positive Image is about bringing together a collection of voices to ask why this dream isn’t a reality.
Part of the work I do through enterprise and entrepreneurship awareness with young people helps to build their self confidence understand that there are people out there who will believe in them; it is not all glamour, making millions and being Britain’s next big thing, it is having people believe in you and the things you. Most of us have a passion for something within ourselves that we can build our confidence around when we have the right people to support us.
Thank you for this campaign. Sadly it's needed more than ever, so well done! It fills me with joy that there's someone out there raising awareness about this issue in schools and in the media. Good luck
Anorexia & Bulimia Care (ABC) would love to be involved in your campaign and since we also have one at the same time it seems appropriate to join forces where we can to get the message out.
We support the positive image campaign for all young people
To be happy in your own skin and be able to cherish your own unique body including all the great many ways it can express itself is something I wish every child and adult. At Yorkshire Dance we feel dance can help you to have a positive relationship with your own body; enjoy what it feels like and what it can do; before getting too worried about what you look like. Dance by a performer who is ‘in the moment’ can be beautiful and deeply moving; completely regardless of age, body shape, body size, gender, disability, race or sexuality. I welcome everyone to find their unique dance!
Having spent a month with bright yellow hair, it reminded me of earlier days working with many different kinds of people who would not FIT into the normal spectrum and it astounded me just how much concern there is about the external image we see and portray and deeply effecting it can be – this is a superb project which will leave an excellent legacy of awareness and help to support and change lives – honored to be connected and support the whole team.
Let us focus on real people and role models than the fantasy word the media portrays
I am a holistic therapist and coach and find your concept inspiring
Because nobody has the right to make you feel bad about who you are.
Seems like a good lad who needs a bit of direction really. Has an idea of what he wants to do but isn’t too sure and likes to day dream a bit. I can relate to day dreaming.

I'm with a lot of other 17 year old's when i say i'm not happy with my appearance but in the end i just think, who cares? Nobody looks the same as anyone else, we are all individual and everyone is beautiful in their own way! I know this all sounds cliche but it's true. If everybody looked the same then it'd be boring, be yourself, there's only one of you and you are unique so make the most of it! there will be many people out there, including ones who you've never even spoke to who think you are beautiful, honestly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, everyone has their own opinion, if they don't think you are good lucking then that's just them, their opinion shouldn't change you! And if they do think you are good lucking, remember that, appreciate and push that to the front of your mind other than concentrating on the negatives. Sorry i'm not very good with words but i hope my message comes across to you clearly.
‘Thank you for everything you’ve done. I really appreciate it. This group has been really helpful to me and has taken my mind away from some other things that are going on. Thank you for being so lovely and taking time to help us’
I think this is a fantastic idea and much needed for young women in particular. So much of the media focuses on celebrity and how women look not who they are and how they behave. So many of the images young women see is about how they need to be something they aren’t and how that makes them inferior.
‘We’ve all grown over the last 3 months. Not just with our confidence but also in the way we have learned to cope in different situations. It was a really worthwhile experience.’
