From a pool of talented artists in the Detroit area, Muslim Girl’s Leah Vernon was chosen to be featured in an ad promoting Adidas’ EQT line. Take a look at what she’s been keeping hush-hush since June, when the brand contacted her to participate.
The Adidas advertisement celebrates Leah’s identity as “fat, Black, and Muslim.”
“Leah recognized very early on that only a certain kind of body type was being celebrated in mainstream media,” the site says. “She uses her body and words to spark conversation in the body positivity movement.”
Take a look at the full interactive site.
Congratulations Leah! We all know that this is just the beginning.
