For this assignment I reached out to someone named Victoria who runs a feminist account on Instagram. I reached out to her because I am very passionate about women’s rights and feminism and wanted to know more about her opinions. I first started out by direct messaging her asking if she would be willing to answer some questions for this assignment. To my surprise, she answered!
As you can see, I have a hard time describing things but I’m glad she understood what I was trying to say.
I loved talking to Victoria and learning more about what inspires her to inspire others everyday!
bullying is still alive and well but with small acts like this we can help spread a positive message
This is Victoria, she runs a feminism account on Instagram. She mainly posts about body image and pictures of twitter discussions and drawings of having a positive mindset, but people could not get over her personal appearance, she decided to instead of taking the harassment any longer, to instead take a stand. People were hating on her so hard even though it doesn’t affect them in the slightest. In this picture, she posted you can see that she is smiling through all the hate because she realized that other people don’t determine your personal happiness. She is human, she is beautiful. People hide behind a screen and pick on people because they don’t think there will be any consequences. And the truth is, there won’t be any, but is it worth it? Is it worth your time to think and type out something negative and hurt someone just so you feel better? I think this picture relates to ‘The Friday Everything Changed’ because even though this story is in a modern setting and with technology, bullying is still alive and well. By posting this picture Victoria may have received more hate or criticism, but if posting this and showing people self-love helped even one person, it made a positive impact. This can be compared to the part of the quote when it reads “small acts of kindness and love” because it’s all about loving yourself and being confident.
