My name is Maritza and im 18 years old. I have a lot of insecurities, and living in a world where things are based on appearances, I have always looked at myself as ugly, fat, just very negative which has made me have a very low self esteem. I used to wear makeup everyday and everywhere I went, even if I went to work out, the corner store, I mean EVERYWHERE. But recently I realized that I am beautiful in my own way and that it doesn’t matter what others think ’cause God made me beautiful! I realized that its inner beauty that counts and that inner beauty reflects and makes me even prettier. Now I have been taking baby steps and not wearing makeup everyday and I feel way more secure about myself. I hear the song Beautiful by MercyMe for encouragement.
We here at Project Inspired want to guide and inspire teen girls to be true to themselves and to God.
