- What do you love about your body?
I love my height. I appreciate being taller than the average woman. And I have always been proud of the color of my skin.
- What are you most insecure of?
As much as I love its color, I have always been insecure about the skin on my face, particularly its texture. It’s not smooth and there are pores and pimples galore.
- After looking at your pictures, have they changed the way you look at yourself?
Being in the theater arts, I have always been so critical of myself, not just my body. Sometimes I cringe when I see myself in certain pictures or videos. Even when I was younger, I was already aware that I had these insecurities.
However, after looking at these pictures, they gave me a sense of pride. I love that they reinforce my belief that I am a piece of art in the making; everyone is. I am learning to cope with my imperfections, yet there are just days when I can’t help but be negative.
But, seeing these pictures makes today a good day and a win for self-empowerment.
