Iskra Lawrence is gunning for the body shamers. Known for her body positive attitude and plucky responses to haters, the 25-year-old model from Worcestershire, has been busy breaking down beauty boundaries one Instagram at a time.

Just last week she shared a side-by-side photo of herself to demonstrate how easy it is to fake a thigh gap on social media and how utterly ridiculous it is to worry about things like that.

And now she’s turning her attention to a body positive campaign that is all kinds of inspirational. Iskra and her bestie Alex Light, a fashion editor from London, have launched the #HeartNotHate initiative which encourages women to high five other women in the body/beauty stakes. The campaign wants women to snap a picture of their mate, write a compliment about them and upload it to a social media channel with the hashtag #HeartNotHate.
✨💕🦄🦄 I'm so excited @alexlight_hello and I have something we'd love to share with you all. ✨I will dedicate all the time and platform I have to try and help improve healthy body image in the media. But really what it boils down to is we need to love ourselves more and each other. 💕It can be tough when bombarded with campaigns saying love yourself, why don't you already? etc...but it's a journey. 💛it won't happen over night and there are still days when I catch myself feeling insecure or down and you have to learn ways to turn those negative thoughts into positive. 💙One way I love doing this is celebrating someone else. 🌸their strength, intelligence, wit, creativity or that they are having a bomb af hair day. 💁When you spread positivity and love you receive it back. 👩‍❤️‍👩So this is why I hope you will join @alexlight_hello and I to #HeartNOThate w a friend or tag a friend and tell them what you love about them. 💕Because the world needs less trolls, bullying and self deprecation and more self acceptance and celebration of others. 🙌 why not have your whole squad feeling good and releasing they are special and beautiful because they are them. 🦄 #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful ps find out what I love about this gf 👆🏼 and all about why we wanted to create this campaign in our Facebook live video for @dailymail 👆🏼link in my bio👆🏼 have to scroll to find it (I didn't know it was live for like the first 5mins😂🙈)

“I’ve been pushing body campaigns a lot but what I haven’t seen much of is celebrating another person, celebrating a friend or a family member who might be struggling or dealing with body issues and needs that kind of pick-me-up,” Iskra told Femail.
