In her own words
“True beauty” I feel isn’t defined by looks but rather the way you carry yourself and your character. I say carry yourself because happy people make me smile and have their own little light, they make me feel important just being around them, and I say your character because ugly personalities aren’t the kind of people I want to be surrounded by. Happy and caring people help bring out the beauty in others.
How did not wearing makeup make you feel?
1- not what I was expecting to have my picture taken, I felt “naked” my face needed color, but it was fun.
Thinking about it, what did your session mean to you?
2- I was glad to be chosen and the fact that someone wanted my photo with no make up made me have a lot of confidence.
What are your thoughts or how do you feel about Project Beauty?
3- I think it’s a good idea. A good way to promote self worth.
Has this experience changed how you see yourself?
4- I wouldn’t say it’s made me look at myself different but I did give me a confidence boost. To care about what’s inside more than out.
Could you share your testimonial?
5-Growing up I always looked to older girls, seeing the way they style their hair, the clothes they wear, and the way they present themselves. Then starting my freshman year, I really let that consume me. I always wanted to look nice, full face of make up, curl or straightened hair, shoulders back, and fake the smile. Starting my sophomore year I really started to see how that didn’t matter! I didn’t need the make up, the clothes, the hair, I just needed to feel comfortable with myself. The more I focused on what I thought of myself, rather than what others thought, the happier I became and the more I thought about helping others rather being so self consumed. I think Project Beauty will help promote the fact that your looks aren’t what make you beautiful but rather where your heart is. What you surround yourself with and the way you treat yourself & others.
