Model for Love

“To be who you ARE in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are many things. We all have different talents and skills, interests and opinions. We are as individually unique as each new day. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, good days and bad. We are perfectly imperfect and our very existence means we have worth in this world, simply because we ARE here.

Model For Love presents a seminar which brings awareness of how the world around us shapes our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs about ourselves. This is the key to cultivating positivity and empowerment. Learning how to challenge our negative beliefs will help lay the foundation of our self esteem and a sense of our own unique beauty and worth.

The media innundates us with images that peddle insecurities disguised as products. Natalie’s experience as an international fashion model allows her to “demythify” the beauty industry and cultivate awareness amoung middle school and high school students. In the seminar, Natalie encourages youth to challenge the status quo concepts of beauty and “cool” by delving into cultural differences and dissecting trends, which leads to a discussion about developing an empowered sense of self worth and how to practice self esteem.

Self esteem is really self love. In school children are taught to read and write, they learn about science, history and math but rarely, if ever, are they taught to love themselves. This is why it is imperative for children to be armed and ready, full of love, to face the world.

Natalie does seminars across the lower mainland as well as one-to-one and private group sessions. To book Natalie or to learn more please email us!
