Just Be You is a movement to inspire people to love and accept themselves just as they are. Make a video telling us YOUR story or film someone who inspires YOU! We want to hear about overcoming adversity, like having a disability, standing up to a bully, or coping with illness or the loss of a loved one. Show the world what it means to Just Be You!
A little backstory
Voiceover actress, motivational speaker, writer and NAAF community member, Ali Voron, has been inspiring people to live lives full of self-love since before I met her and she is about to bring that vision onto the red carpet – if the Force is with us! In mid-2014, when Ali blogged about photos taken of her without makeup, millions of people related to her vulnerability, courage and message of acceptance and comfort in one’s own skin. A colorist and commercial film director, Lesley (Lez) Rudge, read the blog, saw the photos Len Irish took of Ali without a trace of makeup and approached Ali about creating a Public Service Announcement (PSA) with the same message. In "Beautiful In My Eyes," Lez has created something visually stunning that moves the heart. He captures the vulnerability, courage and deep peace that characterize Ali’s inner and outer beauty.
