As the Black Lives Matter movement makes its way around the world, we have to realise that racism is prevalent in our own society and take a look at how we can change ourselves in order for greater change to happen.

Fashion pressure might not seem like a serious concern because of everything going on in the world right now, but it has negative impacts that have been happening for centuries and it’s still happening today.
