“I am now one of the happiest people and I wake up every day truly excited about what the day will bring.”

Miss Earp said she could understand the way others with depression were feeling “because I have been there in the past”.

“I am well aware of the need to be surrounded by more positive messages and vibes, if you are in that mindset,” she said.

“I know how impossible it can feel to see or find your own positivity.”

As well as having more than a million followers on Instagram, Miss Earp has a blog called Smyle – Secrets To Make Your Life Exceptional.

“I strive to provide the kind of positivity, kindness and inspiration that I needed in the hope it will help someone else bring the same kind of sunshine into their own life,” she said.

She said this could be an inspiring quote or capturing and sharing the world’s beauty in a photo or motivating people to become more active and make healthier choices.

Her social-media presence was about “empowering others, spreading kindness and messages of acceptance”.

She sought to helpothers to “seektheir own happiness and joy”, adding that social media had the potential to be “a source of inspiration and motivation for health and happiness”.
