Plus size model Iskra Lawrence took off her clothes in a busy N.Y train. She did it in order to show her dislike for all the body shamers.
There was more than a little surprise for all those on the train who were surprised to see the young and exquisite woman taking off her clothes.
However, there were people who were not happy at this bold statement.
The 26 year old curvaceous model delivered a powerful speech after getting rid of her clothes. The topic of the speech was body shaming.
But, most of the people having no clue about what she was saying, simply chose to look the other way.
After the speech was finished and the model had implored them to celebrate and cherish difference, they could do nothing but applaud the young girl.
Soul stirring delivery
The model from Britain lives and works in London and Big Apple. As soon as she started her soul stirring delivery, there was an interruption in the form of an announcement.
The flustered model waited for a few moments and started again acknowledging that it was bad timing. Iskra has more than 2.5 million follower on her social network account.
Journey of self-acceptance
Iskra was wearing a black dress when she started the speech. She told the commuters that she was seeking to show her own vulnerability.
She also wanted to shares her experiences on her journey of self-acceptance.
Iskra called her body a vessel. She shared how she hated herself when she was growing up since she wouldn’t confirm to the standards of beauty. Later, she stripped down to just underwear.
Iskra posted the video of the episode yesterday. She wrote:
‘I strip down to share my voice and use my power to start a conversation about the relationship with ourselves and each other.
