TNH is on a mission to support and inspire people to rise higher, shine brighter, and give back. As the curator of content for this blog some of the comments I receive are around the external pressure women’s face in wanting to always look good. We derive a lot of our self-image from what we see on TV and in the media—which is most of the time falsified and unrealistic. This particular blog highlights an incredible movement by a man, yes a man; whose mission is to encourage women to see their beauty by being strong, rather than being skinny. Meet Kayvan Mott from “Girl Meets Strong.”
I’m Kayvan Mott, the founder of Girl Meets Strong - a fitness/fashion blog that inspires girls and women to be strong versus skinny. We believe the way to inspire a culture of strength is to tell its beautiful story with real girls captured by the best photographers. And so I created the website of Girl Meets Strong.
Girl Meets Strong is a photo blog, which operates across Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr. We curate photographs meant to change the way we look at women and what we find attractive. We believe that there is an infinite amount of stories from strong, courageous women waiting to be told. Since we all live in such a visual culture, we utilize photos to tell a narrative that is captivating to audiences--young and old.
We’ve recently started a series of original stories - what we call #StrongGirlStories - telling the stories and unique life experiences of women of all ages and walks of life in hopes of motivating and empowering other women.
The most exciting thing is launching our very first set of tanks/tees titled “Strong Is The New Black.” The design is a play off the fashion statement “…is the new black” - and our intention is to illustrate that strength in women IS the new fashion statement, and it’s not going anywhere. They tees are made from organic cotton, and come in women’s as well as men’s sizes. A portion of the proceeds from t-shirt sales go to the Los Angeles chapter of Girls On the Run 501c3 for their work in using running to develop strength and confidence in young girls.
Please join us and support our movement by purchasing a Tee or sharing our video below! Thank you and stay strong!
