Dove #SpeakBeautiful Campaign
Social media is an amazing place. It has allowed me to connect with so many amazing people, start and grow a business, and I have developed partnerships and friendships because of it. I didn’t grow up with social media so by the time I started actively using social media for my blog and business, I was an adult.

As I scroll my feed today (the day after the election), there is a myriad of posts from many different angles. For many young girls that I come in contact with, social media has been part of their upbringing. It is a place where they connect with their friends through snaps, tweets, posts and videos, but also a place where they can be bombarded with messages that are damaging to their self-esteem and confidence. Every day they see messages that tell them that they should look a certain way to be considered beautiful.

Although I have not personally experienced much negativity, as an influencer, I make it my duty to share posts and messages on social media that will uplift and empower others. I often get many messages from young girls telling me how much I’ve inspired them to embrace their hair, start businesses and feel confident in their own skin. This is why I use my voice to #SpeakBeautiful. Words are powerful and you never know how your words and may be impacting those around you, especially the young girls.
