Because it’s easy to be hateful behind the safety of a computer.

After receiving hateful comments about her skin on social media, Em Ford of My Pale Skin made this powerful film to highlight the impact that social media has on the way we perceive ourselves.

Em says, “When my skin became problematic last year I found myself hiding away, feeling that how I looked was unacceptable for social media. It was then that I realized that I really needed to question how and why I was feeling this way.”

“What surprised me and resonated with me was how many people also felt the same way – that others were afraid to show their true selves, too – and that was what I wanted to address.”

“Whilst I was overwhelmed by messages of support, the negative comments were both shocking and disturbing.”

“One challenge many face today, is that as a society, we’re so used to seeing false images of perfection, and comparing ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards that It can be hard to remember the most important thing – You ARE beautiful.”
