Hello Mr Pip Wilson.
My name is **********.
I am a participant from Africa.
I just wanted to thank you personally for your kind words
and reminding us that we are beautiful.
I remember the first thing you said is that
'you are beautiful’
I quickly looked for something else to do, a distraction.
I asked my friend to help me with my hair.
Honestly, at first I was not interested because
I have never thought I am beautiful.
When people give me any compliments
I have always thought that they are
just feeling sorry for me.
I have never loved anything about myself.
I am 22 years and I have never owned a mirror.
The Blobs were my favorite.
They showed of how different we are and
I got to understand more about myself and
even accept who I am.
