There’s something quite exciting about photo shoots and somehow feeling natural in front of the camera. Creating this space to share my style with you creates a profound sense of elation. However, today we’ll change things up a little bit.
I came across this video by Caroline Mutoko that played a significant impact on my mentality. As a 19 year old girl , just like any other teenage girl growing up in the world of slaying, I am faced with so many insecurities and subconsciously seek validation from people. This is just a reminder that you are phenomenal!
Jon Jorgenson puts it so well in spoken word: ‘You are beautiful,you are smart,you are unique. You are worth more than you could ever imagine,worth more than the number on the scale,or the hair product you use, or the shoes you wear. More than how many girls wish they were you or how many guys wish they had you.More than the price tag on your clothes or the percentage on the top of your math test or even the number of followers you have on Twitter.Regardless of who you think you are, whether you model in a magazine, whether you are miss popular or you’ve never had someone you’d call a friend,whether you love yourself and love your life or you can’t stand to look in the mirror and you feel like everything in your life is falling apart.Whether you are such a winner or you feel like the world’s biggest failure. Regardless of who you think you are, you are awesome!’
I couldn’t have said it any better. Maya Angelou: ‘It’s in the reach of my arms, the span of my hips, the stride of my step, the curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.’ I slay!
