After receiving the abuse, Shannon launched her campaign, #ILOVEMINE in which people are encouraged to post something each day that they like about themselves.
The new campaign encourages people to be kinder to themselves and Shannon has received positive comments from fans sharing their journeys.
The influencer said: “On the flip side, I’ve had some really really positive [comments]. Like: ‘I’m really proud to see a strong, beautiful, independent Asian woman representing. It’s the representation that we need’.”
In recent posts, the Instagrammer has opened up about her personal insecurities including a childhood scar on her forehead and feeling self-conscious about her facial features.
The new campaign offers a safe space for the Asian diaspora community to talk about their journey.
