While the Kardashian-Jenner family is not immune to the world’s scrutiny, they do have a way of rising above it all. And perhaps that’s why we find Kylie Jenner’s #IAmMoreThan campaign pretty great.
Because it doesn’t just speak to the rich and famous – it’s about everyone. It’s about acknowledging that you’re more than just one thing. So, while Kylie might think “I’m more than a Kardashian,” you might think “I’m more than my curves.” Whatever your fill-in-the-blank is, we think the young reality television star deserves a high five for getting people to think outside of the illusion that people are one-dimensional, or they have simply one talent, strength or perceived weakness.
She’ll be rolling out people who inspire her every Tuesday on her Instagram account, and the most recent entry? None other than Em Ford, the My Pale Skin Blog video creator who addressed the 100,000 negative comments she received online about her appearance. According to Kylie’s post, “she’s proving to the haters that #IAmMoreThan my acne.” And we totally agree.
#Day6 – I’m obsessed with Em Ford (@MyPaleSkinBlog). She’s a retired model and a current beauty blogger who does dope makeup. She recently revealed on @Instagram that underneath her makeup she has severe acne. “I never had acne when I was a teenager and then at the end of 2014 it just happened. That’s the crazy thing about acne… it doesn’t discriminate on who you are (old, young, black, white, rich, poor)”. Her posts of her makeupless selfies resulted in over 100,000 crazy negative comments on her pictures. Em made a very powerful video highlighting the negative comments she received on her social media after the makeupless selfies. The video racked up 8 million views in the first week and has now been viewed over 15 million times. Em’s biggest advice was to “make friends with the person you see in the mirror because that will change your life. It’s really difficult to do and it’s going to take longer than 2 or 3 days… but once you do it will change your life.” Check out Em’s Instagram @MyPaleSkinBlog – she’s proving to the haters that #IAmMoreThan my acne.
