    Social Media

    I was watching the news today and they were discussing with some of the models from Instagram about how they became Instagram models. They were GORGEOUS! They were explaining how they make money and how they bare just enough skin to be sexy and intice their followers to follow them. This not only increases the amount of revenue they can earn but it increases the number of people following them on Instagram. They were up in the millions! Mind you most of their followers were men. I was really intrigued by this concept. They were not only beautiful women, but they also had brains and a plan to continue to be successful on Instagram. I was impressed. But I also became sadden. I became bothered not because these women are beautiful and have a huge following but I was saddened and concerned about what this particular perception of beauty is doing to our society today. For the men and women. Everyone cannot be a Kardashian. We all cannot look like these beautiful Instagram followers. Let's not leave out the male models on Instagram as well, we all can't all be Idris Elba. So how can we educate our society and upcoming youth on how to build confidence and be happy outside the gram and other social media sites? How can we teach them to be happy in their skin even if they don't look like these Instagram models? You are not social media.
