TEDx Speakers | Iskra Lawrence
Iskra Lawrence is a British model represented by JAG models in the Americas and Models1 in Europe. A champion of body diversity, Iskra has long been committed to improving the image of women in the media, having been told she was both “too big” for straight-size modeling and “not big enough” for plus-modeling. As Aerie’s #AerieReal Role Model Iskra stars in unretouched intimates, loungewear and swim campaigns and tours universities across the USA to speak with students about body positivism. She is also a brand ambassador for the National Eating Disorders Association, creating the NEDA Inspires Award and working to generate awareness and support for individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Iskra is a guest author to many publications including SELF, Time, and the Huffington Post, and the managing editor of RunwayRiot, a fashion, style and beauty site for women of all sizes. Iskra is committed to posting unretouched images on her social media channels and has launched her #IskrasArmy campaign to introduce compulsory self-care education for boys and girls in UK schools.
