2020 was not a year for many, but it was for Halifax, Canada’s Alicia McCarvell!

We’re being distracted from what’s really important. We’re being misinformed, and lied to. Everyday, for decades, but now...more than ever.

Jameela, with a call to stop weighing ourselves with scales, and start weighing ourselves for MORE, began a movement known as “I Weigh”. Now a podcast, Youtube series and highly-followed Instagram page.
