The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced Monday that she is launching a campaign called #IAmMoreThan.
“For the next six days, I will be sharing stories of 6 incredible people who have become heroes in their own way by taking #bullying and turning it into something positive,” she explained. “I ve gotten to talk and bond with all of these people whose stories you will see on my page. I think you will all fall in love with them just like I did. I want to encourage you, my fans, to share something positive about yourselves. I’ll be reading as much as I can so that some of you can be apart of this as well! Let’s do this.”
Jenner, 18, has more than 34 million followers on the photo-sharing app.
On Tuesday, she posted an Instagram of Renee DuShane, 21, who has a genetic disorder called Pfeiffer syndrome that caused people’s skull bones to fuse prematurely, according to the National Organization for Rare Disorders.
“She is so awesome and inspiring,” Jenner wrote of DuShane. “Renee taught ME that #ImMorethan the negative comments that I read.”
This isn’t the first time Jenner has preached positivity online: After teen girls tried to imitate her plumped-up pout by suctioning shot glasses over their lips as part of a dangerous trend called #TheKylieJennerChallenge, she Tweeted words of wisdom to her fans.
“I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look,” she posted in April. “I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look.”
