Jessica Vander Leahy — journalist, curve model and founder, #ProjectWomanKIND

In episode 18 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down for a conversation with journalist, curve model and founder of women’s empowerment platform, Jessica Vander Leahy. Born in Australia and raised in New Guinea, Jess shares her unique and personal perspectives on the label plus-size, the seemingly long road to meaningful diversity in women’s content, and challenges Offline listeners to take responsibility for what we let into our social media feeds. Jess is an advocate for issues bigger than her own, and is helping women everywhere remember that we are more than what we see in the mirror.
