Student were given a much-needed smile in Maynooth this week

Body confidence is a difficult task to master.

When we conducted last year’s slice of Ireland survey over 50% of respondents told us it was an area where they faltered.


Students Alice Kiernan and Megan Daly were well aware of this fact and decided to do something about it for Maynooth University’s Love Your Body Week.

The girls were inspired by a video from Shea Glover in which she told unsuspecting students they were beautiful.

The girls filmed the project as part of their One Year Project.

Alice explains:


“We have given ourselves 365 days to achieve a number of goals, both as a team as well as on our own individual projects. We are using our YouTube channel, and our own blog to document this progress as the year unfolds.”

Megan is an aspiring YouTuber and filmmaker. Her goal for the year is to establish herself as an online content creator and gain a following who enjoy her creative pursuits.

Alice is an aspiring singer-songwriter and her goal for the year is to begin the process of recording her first EP.

Both girls of us are extremely passionate about the promotion of mental health. Their joint goal in the next year is to promote positive mental head and to spread the message of being happy in any way that they can.
