Recently awarded “Emerging Leader” for 2013, at the Australian Government Positive Body Image Awards, Jessica Smith has emerged as one of Australia’s most avid advocates for positive body image, and as one of Australia’s most sought after motivational speakers & presenters.
Born missing her left forearm, and then as a toddler, suffering horrific third degree burns to 14% of her body, Jessica didn’t have such an easy start to life. Low self esteem and an inability to accept herself unfortunately lead to a decade long struggle with bulimia, anorexia & depression.
Jessica is an expert in understanding health and disease within communities and improving health and well-being through priority health approaches addressing the disparities in health status among different population groups. She works tirelessly & proactively to promote positive body image and raise awareness about the seriousness of eating disorders & mental illness.
“I now have a responsibility to be a voice for others who are currently struggling with negative body image. I also have a responsibility to give back to my community by promoting a message of POSITIVE Body Image. We ALL have a role in this life – we can ALL be part of a REVOLUTION of positive change “
She wants you to JOIN THE REVOLUTION and do your part to help promote POSITIVE BODY IMAGE
