Her words about her journey
Every individual has their personal definition of what beauty is. I wake up every day knowing that every step I take is monitored and discussed, hence I don’t take my outlook for granted, as it rubs off my personal brand as an actor and an entrepreneur. I live by these five beauty products, which do not only sustains my skin but keeps my confidence up; Sugar in Honey, Tomatoes, Lemon, Coconut Oil and Water.
Above all these, to me, the expression of love is beauty. The ability to touch a heart is beauty. I have come to appreciate the beauty in my natural body.
Many times, I read stories and comments about how I’ve had surgery to make me look curvier. At first, I’d get worried and depressed over it, but the truth is, I can’t be apologetic for being naturally curvy. I have huge visible scars on my legs and it had been my biggest insecurity for years.
If I have lived comfortably with it till now, then my body will never desire the doctor’s knife to make my look like the world’s standard of a perfect body figure.
When you rip off all the makeup, the hair extensions and all the expensive clothes, what remains of us is our heart, thus, I define beauty as the pureness of heart and the willingness to lift another person up.
