Cybersmile are proud to announce model and actress Bella Hadid as January’s Cybersmiler of the Month Award winner for her bravery in opening up about her excruciating battle with anxiety and depression to help others come to terms with their personal struggles.
Not shying away from sharing details of her difficult life experiences, Bella Hadid recently revealed in an interview with the Wall Street Journal how she would find herself in “debilitating mental and physical pain,” and that she would not know why.
In the hope of helping her fans and the wider public feel less alone when dealing with their own personal mental health problems, Bella took the decision to share details of her journey with anxiety and depression, which she has faced for many years.
Explaining that she would use Instagram to express herself and that “it was the easiest thing for me to do at the time because I was never able to explain how I was feeling,” the star admitted her days could go from good to bad. In opening up about her struggles, she revealed it would make her less anxious, and she had a lot of fans who also privately shared with her their experiences saying “I feel that way too,” she reflected.
“Walking outside, being able to remember there are so many people going through things and have similar patterns to me, it makes me feel better.”
Bella Hadid, Cybersmiler of the Month
With the high pressures of fame, Bella Hadid, aged 25, has been at the height of the fashion industry, making regular appearances at fashion catwalks and being the face of several high profile brands including Givenchy and Chanel. But behind the glamor, Bella has pointed out to her fans that she’s just as vulnerable as any other human being. And telling her story has helped her followers find comfort, and those who are personally struggling to know that they are not alone.
Everybody at Cybersmile would like to say a huge thank you to Bella for opening up about her personal struggles and help people realize that it is ok to not be ok. You are a true Cybersmiler!
