"I get to share information with the people that are following me, I get to educate the young girls and young boys and young people on what is going on in our Earth, what is going on in the United States, what is going on in the government. Everyone encounters pressures, especially with posting your body or anything about yourself, you're constantly going to get picked apart in every single way. It's completely helped me grow a new side of confidence in my life. As much as there was negative, there was just as much positive.”
Covering our Winter 2022 issue, Olivia Ponton reflects on the double-edged sword of social media, using her platform to incite valuable change and climbing the ranks of the modelling industry.
