One thing my mom always tells me is that the only person that you’re going to be with for the rest of your life is yourself so you might as well come to terms with liking yourself. One thing I learned to be comfortable with is my skin complexion. I go to a school where there are mainly Spanish people—light skinned and long hair. I’ve just come to terms with who I am and where I come from (Senegal, West Africa). Only I really know essentially.
