What is Non Airbrushed Me (NAM)?

We live in a world where beauty apparently has a set definition. If you don’t fit into society’s conception of what it means to be beautiful, you are judged and critiqued.

NAM was formed on the foundations of our firm belief that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, skin tones, hair colors, ethnicities…the list goes on and on. What does it matter what we look like on the outside? We all have a beating heart, functioning brain and feet to take us where we need to be. It’s time to be grateful for that alone!

We’re proud to have ignited a fan base of nearly 200k beautiful individuals across the globe. We have a steadfast vision of supporting and encouraging each other to be the best we can we, making the most of who we are! Why change a thing about yourself, when there is no other “you” in existence? Be bold. Be YOU. Be “Non Airbrushed Me!”

What makes NAM unique?

Non Airbrushed Me is a journey from the combined life experiences from Brain Child, Amber Gwynn.

Amber is a Registered Division One Nurse and has worked in a number of health care settings. She completed her Graduate Diploma in Mental Health Nursing, and has supported women in this area in Eating Disorders, Post Natal Depression and Psychosis and Acute Psychiatric Conditions.

Amber currently works full time , where on a daily basis, she is supporting those who have sustained severe injuries.

Amber was also diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1998, and has suffered significant relapses with her condition including blindness and paralysis. Amber experienced severe issues with body image at this time, and is motivated to support women newly diagnosed with this condition in focusing on living with a disability in a positive light. She is passionate about promoting living well with a disability and actively working as an every day amabassador to overcome the stigma attached to living with MS, and give hope to others.

Through these experiences, Amber understands the importance of a healthy and functioning body. She perceives ‘body image’ as a means of being grateful for having a body, and for the life experiences it provides us. She wants women to think about their bodies in a deeper and more authentic way, not just from a superficial level. She wants women to, for example, the next time they go to complain about the cellulite or varicose veins on their legs, to think about not having use or function of their legs.

Amber has since gone on to be a curve model for BELLA management,proud that she is able to promote being a healthy and curvy model in the media, and being a positive representation to all women challenged and confronted with body image issues.

What exactly does NAM do?

Amber is passionate about promoting positive body image, body acceptance and living well with a disability.

Last year on vacation, I was so nervous to wear a bathing suit and I was so nervous about how my body would look to other people. I was even pointed at and laughed at when I went to get into the pool. For a moment I froze, in complete embarrassment, before I decided to move on and not care. Guess what?
It happened again. It happened this year while I was on vacation again.
Yes, I was walking on the beach and again I was pointed at and laughed and made fun of.
As I was getting laughed at and pointed at something came over me. I was not embarrassed, I did not feel like I had to justify myself and I did not freeze or want to cry. I actually felt free! This time...I just did not care!
I tried to go over every change inside my head as to why this year I just did not care. Then it finally hit me. I do not depend on the approval of others, and I do not care what others may or may not think about my body. I am so focused on living my best life, and I have been working so hard on loving me exactly how I am...loose skin and all- that I do not have time to worry about what others may think or say. I can finally say that I am at a place where I still have insecurities and a lot of loose skin, and yes mentally I still struggle at times, but I can finally say that my self love journey has been the focus of this past year, and being at this place in my life where I can walk around in a bathing suit and genuinely feel confident, happy and not care what others may think or say, that is true transformation. That is true growth.
So I am sharing this picture of me in a bathing suit for all of you. This is me. Right now. This is my body. This is what hard work, sweat, blood, tears, smiles, happiness, pain, love, and hard work look like. This is what it looks like to finally accept my body for what it is. This is me. And I am not making anymore excuses as to why I look the way I do...this is just me. Loose skin, cellulite, stretch marks and all. This is me. And I can finally say, I love me!
