Kylie Jenner Is Using Her Instagram Popularity To Make A Difference


This week, Kylie Jenner is using her hugely popular Instagram account to do more than post glamorous photos of herself


She's launched an Instagram campaign called #IAmMoreThan, where she'll feature the inspiring stories of people who overcame bullying.

"For the next six days, I will be sharing stories of 6 incredible people who have become heroes in their own way by taking #bullying and turning it into something positive," Jenner wrote on Instagram. "I want to encourage you, my fans, to share something positive about yourselves." 

Jenner has more than 34 million followers on Instagram. 

The first story she shared came from 21-year-old Renee, who has a genetic disorder that affects the bones in her face. While she was nervous about what people would think of her in college, she found the strength to overcome her insecurities thanks to the positivity she saw all over Tumblr.

On day two, Kylie featured Erica, who recently became the first plus-sized model to grace the cover of "Fitness" magazine. The super-confident, body-positive model knows that she's more than the titles others give her.

The campaign has inspired other people to share their inspiring stories tagged with #IAmMoreThan. Here are some we'd like to share:

1. "#IAmMoreThan my own disability because I found my ability to dance on my wheelchair."

2. "If I can make peace with how I look, you can make peace with your insecurities."

3. "I have always risen above my circumstances and my leg has never stopped me from pursing my dreams. It may have slowed me down but never took my hope away."

4. "I learned slowly but surely that I am more than what I look like on the outside."

5. "I want people to know that, dreams do come true and to never give up on chasing those dreams."

6. "Now that I'm out of the closet it's still hard for some of my family to accept but I have friends that love me for being me."

7. "I am more than my depression!"
