The Body Confidence Canada Awards (BCCAs) acknowledge Canada-based recipients actively fighting against stereotypes, judgements, policies, and discrimination that attempt to label and discredit marginalized bodies.
In 2014, I was so fortunate to win a BCCA award, and it was incredibly meaningful for me, especially in the fashion and beauty industry, where there is little formal accreditation. You can watch my acceptance speech here.
As a previous winner, I was honored to receive an invitation to this year’s event, the 2015 Body Confidence Canada Awards to celebrate new winners and see old friends.
The 2015 winners are:
MAYA McDONALD, Youth, Social Justice & Human Rights
AMRIT SINGH, R.Ac, Health & Wellness, Advocacy, Arts
TIINA VEER, BA RMT RYT, Health & Wellness, Activism
ERIN HUSTON, Youth, Policy, Equity & Inclusion
MO HANDAHU, Arts & Culture, Media
What a stellar evening it was!!! Set in the rustic-chic ballroom of The 519 in downtown Toronto, Ontario, it felt very posh but the vibe was so down to earth and warm. With super charismatic and hilarious host Zahra Dhanani, special guests Dvorah Silverman, Girls Action Foundation and Lisa Hanaam (Heath Editor), GLOW Magazine, shiver-enducing entertainment by Juno Award winner Simone Denny, touching speeches by the winners, and emotional tributes by the BCCA founders Jill Andrew and Aisha Fairclough, the evening was memorable, fun and inspiring.
Support beauty diversity and the Body Confidence Canada Awards by nominating a trailblazer next year!
