Flaws are Gorgeous

As we celebrate the incredible work of our February non-profit, the Alonzo A. Crim Center for Educational Excellence, they've whipped up their own focus this month, "Seeing Beautiful in our Youth." It's a focus that is seminal in our community. As part of their focus, they invited young women enrolled in their Early College High School Project to share how they see beautiful in themselves and the world. The following reflection is brilliantly written by Shanice Farmer. We find ourselves reveling in great hope that our future holds so much thoughtfulness and beauty. Thank you, Shanice for sharing such wisdom for others on seeing beautiful.

"In presence of darkness, my beauty shines bright. My flaws are gorgeous and my personality is golden. With a life full of dreams there are no limits. My beauty is my gift. I am beautiful."
