What colour / texture / both do you enjoy wearing the most?
Bright and light colours with a contrasting black pair of jeans or tshirt. White/lightly coloured leather sneakers. Tshirts and hoodies with prints.
What do you think is the most important part of our bodies?
I think a general balance between body parts is more important than a single body part.
Since I can't answer this question properly I'm going to recruit a flatmate to help me out.
Hi. I think that hands are the most important part of our bodies. We use them for everything that we do and with this, we are able to express so much emotion with the smallest of actions. Whether this be affection, encouragement or aggression. You can tell a lot about someone by looking a their hands; where their calluses are or the length of their fingernails.
What’s your favourite thing about the body?
The eyes. They're beautiful, completely unique from one another and don't change with time. They're the first thing I notice and admire people who maintain eye contact in a conversation, especially if it's the first time I've met them. They can convey confidence, kindness and happiness better than words and are truly the windows to the soul.
Who do you admire?
Chris Pratt. He went from Andy in Parks and Recreation to now-sixty-pounds-lighter-and-shredded-af Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy. This man would not use a spit bucket in Parks and Recreation; so he would eat 5-6 burgers to shoot one scene. No food gone to waste. He went from that to someone who basically looks like He-Man in six months. It just shows that anyone can do it... that is if you're motivated by $1.5million and have constant personal trainer supervision.
How do you think the media has influenced your view on the body?
In my case, the media's influence has had a positive effect. It has motivated me to exercise more and to strive towards a certain physique. I know that this is not the case for most people and that the media has been blamed countless times for an increase in eating disorders and problems with body image. Of course it is important not to fall into complete body dysmorphia, but that's a question of personal mental health. You shouldn't be comfortable with your body if it's unhealthy, but don't end up on the other end of the spectrum where your body defines who you are. There must be a balance. At the end of the day, everyone must understand that actors and models exercise with personal trainers for months on end and stay on strict diets to achieve a certain body type. Take everything you see with a grain of salt, try to care less about what other people look like, and strive for the best you can do; not what Alexis Ren looks like on her edited insta pics.
