Embody Positivity

Embody Positivity campaign 2018-19

Your Welfare Officer 2018/19, Dan Bentley, and your Diversity Officer 2018/19, Nozomi Tolworthy 雷希望, have been working on ‘Embody Positivity’ – a campaign that aims to share ideas of body positivity. This campaign will run from Monday 25 th – Friday 29th March.

You can get involved on Instagram by sharing your #IAM … posts. Let us know what characteristics you value about yourself (eg. #IAM brave, caring, helpful etc) that aren’t related to your physical appearance. Tag @rusuphotos on Instagram so we can share it and tag your friends to get them involved too!
