Callie Thorpe on Confidence and Community

Callie Thorpe on Confidence and Community

By Gemma Styles

Welcome back to Good Influence!

This is the podcast where each week we'll meet a guest who’ll help us pay attention to something we should know about, but maybe don’t. 


This week, we're talking about confidence and community, the importance of having people to relate to, making confidence a practical thing, and how being gentle with ourselves sometimes means treating ourselves like somebody else.

Callie Thorpe is a writer, model, travel and fashion blogger who often shares about self-love on her social media channels. She's also founder of a community called The Confidence Corner, which posts on Instagram for us all to enjoy, but now also features a membership programme which aims to offer safe space for plus sized women.
