This #beautiful #woman contacted me to #share her #story. It #inspired #me to continue pushing this #movement. All the hard #work is all #worth it to hear people say things like this. Thank you so much @annethompson7 for inspiring me! "I'm inspired by your project because it encourages me to feel beautiful while being perceived as "different". So much of my life has been negative due to comments and stares but this project shows me that I need to redirect my focus back onto celebrating my beauty, no matter how unconventional. We should not hide but shout out loud to the world how we feel about ourselves and how beautiful we are. This project also encourages me to take more pictures of myself and to be more present in my life. I'm setting up a photo shoot to have beautiful pictures of myself. And I probably wouldn't have done that prior to reading Flawless Affect. Thank you!"
