What makes you perfect?
I think it’s hard to answer this question because what is the definition of perfect? A person is never meant to be perfect. I have a drive to grow, to learn and develop myself, an urge to become the best version of myself that I can be. I think this is something I like about myself. I don’t easily give up.
Tell us about your unique aspect that we have photographed?
I have some pigmentations on the left side of my face, together with some faded acne marks. I used to be really ashamed of these marks and cover them up with make-up. As I got older I realized no one even noticed them except for me looking in the mirror. I think it shows that you are often your own harshest critic and when you let go of those negative thoughts you can see the beauty within your flaws. The pigmentations show my roots and that is beautiful.
What does authenticity mean to you?
Showing up as your true self. Being open and truly vulnerable. To show up for your own truths and values but also be open towards others, always open to learn from each other and grow from those experiences.
What does perfectly imperfect mean to you?
Seeing the flaws in yourself and others but realizing that these marks make you unique and beautiful. It is what makes you, you. They can tell a story, the path you had to go through in life, it makes you more interested. Loving yourself and others, Flaws and all.
