15 Apr Dove says #ChooseBeautiful
There is something to be said about growing into oneself and having the quiet confidence that older women have always told me about when I was in my early twenties. In fact, nothing feels better than feeling like yourself and accepting all those things you used to obsess about incessantly when you were younger. I suppose that is kind of what Dove’s #ChooseBeautiful campaign is about.
For me beauty is about accepting who you are and being comfortable in your own skin, embracing all of your imperfections and realising that these flaws and imperfections are what makes you unique and beautiful. As I have gotten older, the journey and desire to be more of myself has increased and I have never felt more beautiful being comfortable in who I am, which is why I was so moved when I watched this Dove #ChooseBeautiful video and saw how many women from across different cities in the world choose to define themselves as “Average.”
Coming from a family filled with amazing strong women and having female friends who are insanely inspiring and all beautiful in their own way; is how I came to learn very early on what “that beauty is a choice, and the power of this choice is in your hands.”
