Our Body Image and Social Media: Live Life Unfiltered | Keisha & Teagan Simpson Simpson | TEDxOttawa



Instagram is significantly linked to body image issues in young women. Twin sisters, Keisha and Teagan, share their own experiences with comparisons on social media and pressures for perfection. The sisters discuss the damaging effects that photoshop can have on one’s self-image and encourage us all to live life less filtered. Instagram: @livelife_unfiltered 22-year-old twin sisters Keisha and Teagan Simpson grew up struggling with body image, living up to society’s unrealistic beauty expectations, and constant comparison. After they realized that the majority of young women shared the same struggles, the sisters co-founded Live Life Unfiltered (LLU); a social media movement where brave and honest young women share how social media often makes them feel insecure about their own bodies, relationships and lives. @LiveLife_Unfiltered and its hashtag, AsSheIs, are to remind us that behind each ‘perfect’ photo is a young woman who shares common struggles and insecurities. LLU’s AsSheIs photo challenge has had over 1000+ participants in 14+ countries, demonstrating how willing young women are to changing how we interact with social media. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
