Founder of Love Disfigure

Sylvia Mac

Body-Equality Activist and Child burns survivor Sylvia Mac accepted the The Boots Wellness Warrior Award from Tamzin Outhwaite.

As a child, Sylvia was burned and subsequently scarred down her back after falling into a bowl of boiling water – today, she campaigns to challenge the fashion industry, media and society to represent and accept people who look “different” through her ‘Love Disfigure’ work.

Sylvia Mac said, “I am proud and honoured to receive a The Boots Wellness Warrior, Woman Of The Year Award. I hope this award can show all those women who struggle with their mental health as I did for many years, that anything is achievable.”
