Real Beauty Moment: I Found My Calling

Real Beauty Moment: I Found My Calling

I feel like there’s no such thing as perfection.  Everybody had flaws.  I just feel like eventually you get older and you just learn to not care anymore.  We all have insecurities.  I used to not really have any confidence.  I cared about my eyebrows being thick, my big forehead, and my big nose, but I guess when you get older you mature and you just don’t care anymore.  I used to feel down because people used to make fun of me about it.  I got over it around senior year in high school.

Once I realized that I could do something besides going to school and being a doctor was life altering for me.  I didn’t know that people actually get paid to do Youtube videos and those kinds of things.  Once I found people who are into the same stuff as me, I realized I could actually make money and enjoy what I like to do.  My Youtube is Hikari Fleurr.  It’s about beauty, fashion, hair reviews, and makeup.  Before I didn’t really know what I wanted to be.  I was just going to school and going with the flow.
