Miss Universe Thailand 2021 Anchilee Scott-Kemmis took to her twitter account to express her displeasure on the harmful behaviour prevalent in the online world. The Thai-Australian model talked about the negative impact hurtful, criticising, and unnecessary commentary has on an individual mentally.

“We are still body shaming? The impact it has on a person will be something those who have never been through it will understand. It takes a toll on one’s mental health, so before you comment or post something- take a second to be mindful and think about the impact it may have,” she posted on her social media handle.



The queen stands for redefining beauty standards by celebrating diversity, individuality and has been successful in starting more discussions around the topic in the pageant world. Anchilee faced body shaming while growing up and felt it her responsibility to create a better space for all bodies to exist as they are. ‘Real-size beauty’, her online movement was borne out of her own experiences and strives to normalise all body shapes and sizes.

Talking about her social movement, the queen says, “Real-size beauty is about you celebrating your individuality, the aspects of your diversity and the unique qualities you have within you. It’s about being proud of who you are and where you’ve come from and it’s not limited to shapes and sizes.”



We should be mindful of the impact we might have on others, not just in real life but also in the virtual world by commenting politely and respectfully.

Here’s to our queen creating waves and making a real difference!
