Words of wisdom: "We all have down days, and honestly that is ok. But it's not ok to not be your own best friend and cheerleader. Whenever anyone says they're feeling down about their looks I always remind them of the beauty in individuality. There is no one on the planet who looks like you or has your unique features so you celebrate them and don't put them down. I'm a big advocate of the extraordinary or the different and I believe everyone is inspiring because we are all different. Confidence comes from understanding that you only have one life so make the most of it! You can't compare yourself to anyone! Be You and Love You."
