#Kleanse Spotlight: See The Inspiring Messages These Older Ladies Have For Today's Young Women

| Filed under: InspirationGirl Power

They say young women should live in the moment.

We don't want to live our lives with regret.

And these older women don't want us to, either! A London spa called Sanctuary surveyed young women about their stress, and found that 70% feel a ton of pressure to be perfect, and are burning themselves out as a result.

So, the spa enlisted the help of a few experienced ladies, to share their messages about what's really important in life.

These lovelies reminisced about the way they lived their lives, and brought up all the things they wished they'd done differently, like taking extra time with their loved ones, or allowing themselves to have more fun.

They stress to today's young women that it's important to live in the moment, because it's easier to enjoy your life that way.

Ch-ch-check out their wise words (below)!

#Kleanse: Teen Model Blasts The Industry For Calling Her 'Too Big'

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueInspirationModelsBodyGIFsGirl Power

Model calls out fashion industry for claiming she's too big.

We've spoken before about how ridiculous the modeling and fashion industries are…

And here's another example!

Nineteen-year-old model Agnes Hedengard has recorded a video calling out the modeling industry for saying she's "too big" despite having a BMI of only 17.5 — when anything below 18.5 is actually considered underweight!

The Swedish teen explains that when clients find out her measurements they no longer want to work with her, and that the main criticism from the industry is that her butt is too big and her hips are too wide.

Ridiculous!

Anyone with eyes can see that she's extremely toned and svelte!

Does every model have to have her bones visible to be considered "good enough" to get work?

Recently France banned models deemed too thin, in order to combat the major issue of eating disorders that plagues so many of these young women, and yet it doesn't seem to have been enough.

It's truly appalling to learn that girls like Agnes are considered "too big" to get work.

Watch Agnes explain in her own words in the clip (below)!

#Kleanse Spotlight: 15-Year-Old Trisha Prabhu Develops An App That Looks To End Cyberbullying!

| Filed under: InspirationTech TalkBullyingViral: KidsGirl Power

Trisha Prabhu is tackling cyberbullying head on!

It's hard to remember what exactly we we're doing when we were just 15 years old, but we're willing to wager it wasn't nearly as inspirational as this!!

With everyone connecting via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, cyberbullying is a pretty huge issue these days — ESPECIALLY in high schools!

But Trisha Prabhu is doing everything she can to make the Internet a friendlier place with a little app she developed called ReThink!

By connecting to all of your social media apps on your mobile device, ReThink is able to keep track of any outgoing messages or possible posts and asks users to reconsider sending anything out if it detects harmful or offensive language!

As a high schooler, this issue clearly hit close to home for Trisha. But she says she was really inspired when she heard the story of a teen who took her own life after being the victim of cyberbullying:

"How can a girl younger than myself be pushed to take her own life? I was shocked, heartbroken and angry to learn about this incident and set out to find a long-term solution to cyberbullying. I knew I had to do something to stop this from ever happening again."

While not all victims claim their own lives, the numbers are pretty staggering when it comes to teens dealing with depression and anxiety due to cyberbullying.

Trisha goes on to say:

"Research shows that over 50% of adolescents online are cyberbullied, 38% suffer from suicidal tendencies. Victims suffer from depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem, and are afraid to go to school the following day."

The app is currently available on the Google Play store and should be available to Apple devices soon, but the early reviews are already great!

In fact, Trisha says ReThink users have reconsidered sending harmful messages about 93% of the time!

The 15-year-old has already won a handful of awards for her innovative app and she's rubbed shoulders with some pretty interesting people (above), and we have a feeling this wont be the last we hear from her!

Lily-Rose Depp Reveals She's Not 100% Straight By Participating In THIS LGBTQ Photo Campaign! See The Pic!

| Filed under: InspirationJohnny DeppYoung HollywoodTeensVanessa ParadisCeleb KidzInstagramLGBT

Lily-Rose Depp teams up with iO Tillett Wright!

Lily-Rose Depp has teamed up with photographer iO Tillett Wright for his latest photography campaign.

In doing so, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis' daughter admits to falling somewhere on the LGBTQ spectrum!

[ Video: See Lily-Rose Star In Her First Music Video! ]

That's because the campaign, called the Self Evident Truths project, uses photographs to showcase people who identify — even if it's only marginally — as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer! The project's website explains:

"The Self Evident Truths project is a photographic document of 10,000 people in the USA that identify as ANYTHING OTHER than 100% straight – as in, if you are anywhere on the LGBTQ spectrum in ANY way, even 1% gay, we want to take your picture!"

On Sunday, the artist took to Instagram to share a sweet snap with Lily (above) that they took together for the campaign, captioning the precious pic:

"I'm so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. She decided she wanted to be in @selfevidentproject because she falls somewhere on the vast spectrum, and I couldn't be happier to welcome her to the family. She's a tiny gem of a good human.#prouduncle #weareyou"

And the famous teen isn't the only model-slash-actress to take part in the Self Evident Truths project!

Last year, Cara Delevingne snapped a selfie with iO for the campaign! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

#Kleanse Spotlight: A Teen With A Rare Skin Condition Has Amazing & INSPIRING Self Confidence!

Ciera Swaringen could care less about the haters!

Ciera, who is just perfect for our #Kleanse Spotlight, was diagnosed with an EXTREMELY rare skin condition called giant congenital melanocytic nevus. The condition means Swaringen's body is completely covered in birthmarks and moles, a fate that would be difficult for any teenage girl. Ciera, however, is absolutely glowing with confidence and her philosophy on her condition will definitely leave you feeling inspired!!

While the high school graduate admits that growing up she struggled with bullies (a boy on her school bus once called her a "spotty dog"), she has found acceptance, saying:

"I'm so proud to be different, and at the end of the day, we all have something about us that's unusual, whether it's on the inside or the outside. Over time I've learnt to brush off negative comments and remember that most people stare and say cruel things because they're not used to seeing someone with my condition."

Preach, girl! We all have something unique about us!

Swaringen, who has found a supportive family, added:

"I remember when I started school my mum told me that my birthmarks were angel kisses - and that really stuck with me."

Aww!! What a beautiful analogy!

Based off all the photos of the 19-year-old that we've seen, it's clear that she's happy and full of love. Imagine how different the world would be if every young woman had this amazing level of confidence?!
