Jes Baker is an author, international speaker and blogger with a background in mental health where she worked as a BHT, Psychosocial Rehabilitation Specialist, Peer Navigator and Educator.
In 2013, she created satirical versions of Abercrombie & Fitch advertisements which led to her first appearance on the Today Show, marking her arrival as a prominent voice in the body image movement.
Jes has written and published two books: Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls, a handbook created for those who are beginning their body acceptance journey and Landwhale, a memoir-esque exploration of the complex conversations that arise while navigating the world as a fat woman.
She remains forever indebted to and grateful for the body activists that have come before her and additionally, the activists that surround her now. It is because of their legacy work and current endeavors that Jes is able to not only have healing conversations with others, but is additionally able to work on personal healing in her own life.
In her words: My passion lies in working towards turning our cultural concept of beauty/worthiness on its oppressive head as I know for a fact that every person is deserving of respect and feeling valued no matter their size, shape, race, sex, ability, gender, age or health records.
My hope is that through unlearning societal lies that surround the topics mentioned above, individuals will be able to reconnect with themselves, make peace with their bodies (as well as other people’s bodies), work towards personal liberation and ultimately access their best life – whatever this means to them. When achieved en masse, I can’t help but believe that we will see a shift in our world for the better.
