Iskra is a new ambassador of The Prince’s Trust & L’Oréal Paris.
L’Oreal Paris has always believed that everyone is worth it, whoever you are, wherever you’re from.
Since February 2017, with ambassadors, employees and The Prince’s Trust we’re helping young people through the “All Worth It” training programme, online and in all Prince’s Trust centres. Helping to transform self-doubt into self-worth for 10,000 young people across the UK.
Here’s why they picked Iskra:
When dropped from her modelling agency for the size of her hips at the age of 16, Iskra’s self-esteem took a huge knock leading to her battling with eating disorders and body dysmorphia. Iskra made the decision to stop trying to conform to somebody else’s beauty ideals and learnt that there is so much more to life than worrying about your insecurities.
