A little Insight @a.little.insight is an online magazine sharing Emma's @emmaliveyoga personal piece.

Since being in this relationship, I have witnessed first-hand levels of casual and cruel discrimination she has received after a fleeting glance and a judgement made based purely on her appearance.
