“Who am I?” – Let’s Talk Identity

We, as a society, have an identity crisis. We don’t know who we are, and as a result we escape in work, vanity, the numbers game, sex, money, addictions, food – anything we can to fill the void...

We, as a society, have an identity crisis. We don’t know who we are, and as a result we escape in work, vanity, the numbers game, sex, money, addictions, food – anything we can to fill the void inside. These disguises might start out innocent, but they can turn out to be downright deadly because nothing from this world can give us our worth. Nikki DuBose uncovers where true identity comes from and how she went from a broken child who wore masks to please others, to an addicted adult who clung to her disorders and career, to finally a woman who was stripped away from her disguises and freed from the pain of her past by the light of the Holy Spirit.

Eating disorders and trauma – especially child sexual abuse – often go hand-in-hand. In America alone, eating disorders affect an estimated 30,000,000 individuals, and child sexual abuse, 42,000,000. However, child sexual abuse is an issue that seen as shameful and is usually pushed “under the rug,” leaving its victims to suffer in silence while its perpetrators continue living unscathed. In order to break the vicious cycle, it is necessary to educate and discuss prevention methods. Nikki DuBose draws upon her current work with Peaceful Hearts Foundation and Project Heal SoCal, and speaks about her former experiences with child sexual victimization, how it led to eating disorders for over seventeen years, what can be done to prevent the two, and offers tips and resources that can help survivors heal.

In an industry that is poorly regulated, what critical changes need to take place to ensure that the health of models – and the health of society – improves? Current research shows that 40% of models suffer from some sort of eating disorder. Agents work closely with males and females within the industry, yet they are often unaware of the issues that affect them – issues like eating disorders, body dysmorphic disorder and sexual harassment. If we can change the way that the health standards are within the industry, then this can in turn have a better impact on society. Models need to understand that they are not “hangers” made to merely turn a profit for the designers, clients and executives in the industry. They are worthy, valuable individuals with incredible capacities to make changes in this world – they can be some of the biggest role models in society. Where we can have education, we can have healing and change.

Self-love is one of the most powerful tools we can have; when we love God, love ourselves and love others, we can be an advocate for positive change in the world.
