Anais | California

I struggled with my body image and low self-confidence before meeting a caring adult in my school who supported me. Now I have more confidence than ever, and I even run my own beauty and lifestyle blog. I hope to study broadcast journalism at UCLA or attend the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.
