BODY IMAGE MOVEMENT
Started by founder Taryn Brumfitt, the Body Image Movement (BIM) is on a mission to change the belief that your body is not an ornament, it’s the vehicle to your dreams. BIM is on a quest to end the global body-hating epidemic and believes that everyone has the right to love and embrace their body, regardless of shape, size, ethnicity and ability.
I am proud to be a Body Image Movement Global Ambassador since 2015. Link to my bio: https://bodyimagemovement.com/bimgas/tanya-mark/
