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