I’m Enough Because I Say I’m enough

Whether she's stealing a scene or teaching a class, Heather White radiates a beauty that's all her own.

Heather White is battling media misrepresentation every day simply by being herself. Through her work as a plus-size actress on Mohawk Girls, Heather breaks free from the media's beauty norms and dis-empowers the romanticized and racist Pocahontas archetype. She also works as an educator, empowering students to look at society through a critical lens and challenge what they do and don’t see.

To see more of Heather, watch the episode Rebel With A Cause in WIOT TV Season 3 on APTN.
