Beauty Is…

What do you feel is your most Beautiful feature? 

 My Skin! I grew up HATING my skin! I was always too black, or too dark. I have grown to absolutely love it! My skin isn’t perfect by any means, but the texture and shade are so rich! My skin makes me feel like royalty. Although there is ALWAYS some level of difficulty with finding my shade, I feel more special as opposed to frustrated. My skin is so complex that your scientists haven’t found the perfect combination yet! 

If you could go back to your younger self what would you say to her? 

 You are beautiful! You will grow to love the texture and shade of your brown skin. Being the darkest person in a room will no longer make you uncomfortable. Yes, kids are teasing you, and calling you names because you are different, but different is an amazing thing! Stop asking yourself “Why am I so ugly?” or “Why am I so black?”. Your blackness is all a part of what makes you so beautiful. Blending in with the crowd is not going to work my dear. Let your light shine, and don’t allow others to dim it. P.S. Those big bushy eyebrows that you have will be a blessing in the future! They are going to be “in” … I know! I can’t believe it either!
