Why I started G.G.B.B
Hey Goddess! My name is Mikayla and I'm 12 years old. When I was younger, in school, I used to feel insecure about the way I looked. The girls had beautiful long hair that wasn’t curly and they were skinny. There weren’t many girls that looked like me actually -- they weren’t black, they didn’t have short kinky hair and they didn’t have curves. On top of that, they didn’t suffer from eczema like me. Seeing that everyday made me feel like that was how I was supposed to look. In order to make friends, I had to change the way I looked and if I wasn’t accepted, something was wrong with me. I was different. I wasn’t good enough.
The feeling was so overwhelming that I went to my Mom to talk about it. My Mom encouraged me by saying that I don’t need to change for anyone and I am beautiful just the way I am. With my mom and family supporting me, I started to focus on being positive. I realized that I am beautiful, amazing and powerful just like a Goddess. I started G.G.B.B (Glitter Goddess Beauty Boutique) because I want everyone to know that being unique is beautiful. Don’t ever be afraid to be yourself and whenever you feel insecure, embrace that inner goddess in you. Step out and show the world how truly amazing you really are!
