Due to my left leg being slightly larger than my right, Seventeen Thailand asked me to speak in order to empower young female readers on body image. In 2017, I was interviewed by the Editor and Chief of the magazine (which is written in Thai) about how I cope with the stereotypes of the ideal perfect body. I answered by stating how I eventually overcame the embarrassment of wearing shorts and walking around with uneven legs by not caring about the benchmark society has put up. Thus, during the interview, there was a mutual agreement that my larger leg would not be photoshopped, as I am not ashamed with the way I was born, and that was what I wanted to convey to the readers.
During this process, I learned how to remain objective and professional. It was the first time I was asked to speak openly about anything, but the fact that it was an extremely personal topic taught me how to be mature and sophisticated, even though I was only 17.
This goes hand-in-hand with the other works in my collection "Learning to Love Yourself" as most of the works I have done is geared towards empowerment and learning to accept yourself and others.
