Fundamentally, the body positivity movement encourages all to embrace insecurities and to be unapologetic for their bodies. Sienna has used her social media platform to echo this sentiment, encouraging her followers to love themselves for who they are, not who society tells them to be.

Her latest video, released on November 30th 2020, demonstrated how pictures onsocial media are posed, not representing the influencer’s body in real life. This video is a fresh reminder that not everything you see on Instagram is reality, reminding fans that nobody is perfect.

Amongst the videos of her dancing or having fun with friends, she creates eating videos, sitting and eating her food for a minute whilst encouraging fans to join her.

These videos are made in an attempt to relieve the stress surrounded by eating, making them particularly helpful for those suffering from disordered eating.

Her comment section is flooded with appreciative fans, expressing their gratitude to her and her message. One commenter writes, “I ate a whole meal after gaining confidence” whilst another says, “THIS is an influencer”.

It is evident that her followers see her as a positive influence and who could blame them? Siena chooses to promote self-love over the latest body ideal, something that is rare to find nowadays. Her transparency with her fans helps them relate to her, making them feel that no matter how they look, they can still achieve anything they set their mind to.

Her merch brand, ‘Confident is Cute’, reiterates her positive message. Selling tops, bottoms, and accessories with the catchphrase ‘confident is cute’, her followers can spread the message further. At the age of 16, Sienna has already achieved so much, we can’t wait to see what she’ll do next.

At the end of the day, we should all aspire to be a little more Sienna.

  4. Throughout the awesome pattern of things you actually receive a B+ for effort and hard work. Where you misplaced me was first in all the details. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate at this point. Having said that, allow me say to you exactly what did work. The article (parts of it) is actually really convincing and that is probably why I am taking the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, despite the fact that I can easily notice the leaps in logic you make, I am not necessarily convinced of just how you seem to connect your points which inturn make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect your facts better.
