This past spring we invited some pretty awesome and inspiring women into our studio to talk about #smartisbeautiful. Over the next couple of weeks we will be sharing with you their personal stories, how they define beauty, why education is important and what made them want to get involved with 4 All Humanity.
What promoted you to be a part of this photoshoot?
I wanted to show my daughters that smart is beautiful and that there is not just one beauty ideal.
What do you think defines beauty?
What is perceived as physical beauty is ephemeral and varies by culture or region. I think real beauty is defined by kindness. A smile or an act of generosity is beautiful everywhere.
Why is education important to you?
Education is empowering. It will take you placed you've never been just by opening a book. An education will create opportunities never dreamed of.
What would you say to a young girl going to school for the first time?
Be curious and courageous. Do not be afraid to accept challenges or to make mistakes.
