HOLD YOUR HEAD UP
HYH Up Campaign
After placing as a Top 8 Finalist in the National Search for #FindingAshleyStewart 2018, Diane Daiga observed a recurrent theme throughout her journey that she already knew existed. But this time, the voices were louder, the stories were more vivid and the heartfelt candor from women who shared their pain of overcoming bullying, body shaming, domestic violence and low self- esteem issues stayed with her. Two weeks after the show’s grand finale in New York on Sept 15th, Diane Daiga decided to launch a campaign that would empower curvier woman & young girls to find their voices & wings in all situations.
The “Hold Your Head Up – H.Y.H. UP” Campaign drives home the message that confidence is attainable just by Holding Your Head Up High. Curvier women & young girls who are predisposed to bullying, body-shaming and domestic violence need such positive reinforcements on a daily basis.
H.Y.H. Up Campaign is an extension of the Miss Statuesque Platform which focuses on helping plus size women to love & embrace their curves. HYH Up is about Self-Love & Self-Esteem, it’s about Body Positivity & Confidence Building. We are against bullying and violence. We hope that men like women & boys like young girls would embrace & implement this message as part of their nomenclature.
Diane Daiga is a Talk Show Host on dDTalks, she’s a Speaker, Founder of Miss Statuesque as well as a Plus Size Model & Influencer with a huge heart for community building.
