Real Beauties features women who are beautiful inside and out.

 Age: 22

Occupation: Student

Why she’s a real beauty:  “I’m a diva because I deviate from being boxed into the social norms that seek to place women, even sistas, into a certain look to be deemed beautiful and accepted by peers. I just do me, and that’s working for me- call it the beauty of God and self-love.”

Why she’s a real beauty: “I’m my definition of beautiful. I’m slowly becoming the woman I want to be, and that’s sufficient enough for me. I’m being formed by what God’s word says I should be, and you can’t go wrong with him!

“Like any other human being, I do have flaws, but I think I’m beautiful on the inside. As far as outside beauty, I could do better (like dressing better and getting my hair, nails and toes done), but overall, I’m happy with who I am, and what I look like, and to me, that’s all that matters.” : )
