Mental Health Campaigning

TEDx Talk ‘Is Society Breaking Children’s Brains?

As well as sharing her own experiences of anxiety, panic attacks and her recovery from an eating disorder in 2006, Natasha advises politicians on how schools and colleges can promote better mental health.

Body Image Campaigning

Natasha believes fashion and beauty should showcase a wide range of shapes, sizes, ages, races and physical abilities.

She has modelled for lingerie and swimwear company Curvy Kate, agency Models of Diversity as well as for bridal boutique Bodice and Bustle.

Natasha is a size 16 and has a severely scarred abdomen following surgery for pyloric stenosis when she was a baby and an emergency laparotomy when her spleen ruptured in 2013.

She hopes in writing and speaking about body confidence and her own experiences she will inspire other people to feel proud of their bodies.
