Dear Brown Skinned Girl

A letter to my younger self

IMG_0045
Dear brown skinned girl,
You are beautiful!
You radiate like the sun
You light up rooms that you walk into and leave a trail of joy.
You are brave and bold, and capable of reaching all your dreams.
You are not different, you are unique.
The color of your skin is not your limit; it is your gateway to break barriers and step on
the world’s biggest stages.
Don’t place limits on yourself!
Block out the negative voices inside your head that are keeping you from stepping out in
confidence.
Wear blue eye shadow, bright lipsticks and red nail polish!
Don’t hide!
Don’t be afraid of anything or anyone.
The girl looking at you in the mirror is going to do amazing things.
Dear brown skinned girl,
You are loved!

 

Sincerely,

eb0f94f9f3ebe71f83375fff42751c47
