Episode notes

Welcome to Mission Confidence, a special edition of the Going For Goal podcast sponsored by Philips that’s designed to help you on your body confidence journey. This podcast has been created as part of our Project Body Love initiative, which is all about challenging the way we think, feel and speak about our bodies; embracing what makes us unique and putting an end to negative self-talk and embarrassment. Philips believe that hair removal should be a choice, and it looks different for everyone. If you do choose to remove your body hair, whether you prefer to take it all off or to tackle your legs, armpits or bikini line only, Philips has a range of hair removal tools to suit your needs. And on Mission Confidence, over four episodes and with the help of some very wise women, we’re going to be exploring confidence in its various facets and forms – with the goal of helping you tap into yours. Today we’re discussing the self-esteem-bolstering power of expressing yourself through fashion with Sonny Turner, a 22-year-old Birmingham-born model and body positivity advocate. Whether she’s stepping down the runway at NY fashion week or posing up a storm on her IG grid, you’ll know her as bold, confident and committed to sharing the message that women of all shapes and sizes should feel empowered to experiment with fashion and wear what they want, when they want. Here, Sonny reveals the body image wobbles she’s experienced over the course of the pandemic and how pulling together new outfits, and leaning into workouts, has helped her get excited about the unlocked summer ahead. She also shares how experimenting with the Philips Lumea at home IPL device is helping her get the smooth armpits she prefers – without irritation.
