Have you ever heard that saying “Beauty is only skin deep?” Of course many of us have but what about the person that doesn’t feel beautiful on the outside or inside? As a young black woman living in a world where beauty determines your self-worth, it’s easy to feel like you have been overlooked and unnoticed. In my blog, we will discuss some topics about how the European standard of beauty plays a psychological role in the mind of young black females, the hashtag #blackgirlmagic, the stereotypes of black women, light skinned vs dark skinned color clash and so on. My blog will also feature a “Beauty of the Day” post which will show women of color and a small bio of themselves. I hope you all enjoy and gain some encouragement from this!!!
