How do you defy society’s typical beauty standards?

I challenge the conventional standards of beauty just by merely existing–in other words, my features fall outside the traditional notions of beauty.  As a result, the subculture beauty is forced to create an all inclusive space (internally and externally) where she is represented and celebrated for being other.

What inspires your style?

I consider my style inspiration to be Blaxploitation meets old Hollywood infused with African traditional culture.

At this point in my life, I am very comfortable in my own skin because I have a clear understanding of self and my abilities.  I no longer feel the need to seek external validation to reinforce internal self-worth.
