“I Am Beautiful means being able to be confident in myself and what I want to do and accomplish in life. I Am Beautiful has taught me to love my body, my flaws, and to embrace every part of my culture proudly. Lastly, it means to be Beautiful, Energetic, Assertive, Unique, Tenacious, Important, Fabulous, Unequaled, and Loved.”
