I used to be told all the time that I wasn’t pretty, my teeth were too big, my nose too pointy, and my hair too unruly. I looked to guys for affirmation of my beauty but that didn’t work because they simply reaffirmed what everyone else said about me. Even my mom said my face was nasty from acne but then again, if it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be trying to look good at all. I took this when I woke up in my dorm room one morning and thought my hair looked cute in messy braids.

    I actually love my hair despite the fact that I get static and split ends all the time. My hair is the perfect color and the perfect length. I used to wish I had gorgeous curly hair like my friends but I understand now that that takes a ton of work and I am happy my hair is simple and straight. You probably can’t see my eyes too well in this picture because they get squished when I smile. I love my eyes. I have the lightest brown eyes in my family; everyone else has dark brown eyes. I like looking for unique things about me.

    Yes I do use makeup on special occasions but my mom isn’t around to tell me that I look ugly and unfinished. When you’re in class at 7:15 in the morning, you could care less about what you look like plus I have great friends now and we always encourage each other to believe that we are beautiful without eating disorders or makeup. God is good!
