What do you think beauty is?
“Beauty is what you think of yourself. If you think that you don’t look good, you won’t see yourself as beautiful, even though you are.”
Do you think your beautiful?
“Sometimes I feel beautiful, and sometimes, when I sin, I feel dirty. It’s like, ‘eeeewwww, why’d I do that?’ ”
What do you wish women knew about real beauty?
“People make a mold, and say, ‘This is how a relationship should be, and this is how you should be.’ But, you have your own mold that you fit into. Some people don’t want to be who they are suppose to be, and try to be somebody else. But it’s not comfortable. It’s a good feeling to be comfortable as yourself. Just be yourself, because people will love you for who you are.”
