I have always told my daughter from the time she was two years old that she is beautiful and smart. When she turned three, I started telling her she is unique and a leader, not a follower. Now I tell her she is an individual not part of a herd. I heard that from my mother growing up and it enabled me to own the power to choose based I what I desired instead of being led by others.

"What makes you original is what ales you beautiful." This is such a great statement, because often people find the things that make them different make them feel ugly.👌🏾

I'm so glad The Platform is providing videos like this! I want to start making videos influencing and inspiring people on my YT Channel. I was Vice President of an organization in my Community College and I was SO happy in being a part of something more than myself, I really enjoyed making a difference!

I'm a high school teacher that has struggled with embracing my natural hair for years. Normally, I straighten my hair, because I've always felt that it looks more professional and it's easier to maintain. This year I'm teaching at a very diverse school. Every culture is represented at my school including Hispanic, Black, Asian, Arabic, Chinese etc, and I'm realizing how important it is for me to be who I am. I've been embracing my natural beauty this year after having a conversation with a teacher about how important it is for our students to see their teachers as they are. I hope that my students will see me as I am, and learn that's it ok for them to be who they are.

I am defining natural beauty by simply being myself. I am unique and not afraid show that!
Britanny Smith (3 years ago)
I am very late on this channel but I know this is a beautiful thing that you ladies got going on. It is hard being a women let alone define who you are and not allowing others to do that for you. I love the positive energy and so much is given within those 5 mins. When I was younger I was picked on about having big lips and being skinny and I think every women no matter ethnicity has a back story. I was blessed to have a loving mother who told me these people are not your friend and they are jealous and you are a beautiful smart young lady. So at an early age I was able to embrace the "Lushes" my lips and as time progress the young women weight ( which I was elated to gain) lol. But there are times that you(I )have to (no matter the age) look in the mirror and tell yourself you are a beauty intelligent women and I you love to yourself. Don't wait and depend to get it form other people.  I try to spread this message along and help out my fellow women with their self worth and  confidence within themselves. So kudos to you ladies and many blessings and love on this journey that you are taken and including us all to take with you.

I love those "defining beauty" videos but 5 minutes length is tooo short. I would love a 1 hour video :)!!!
Felicia blaylock (3 years ago)
I absolutely love the defining beauty vlogs you all create. I think this is so important not just for the young girls but women like myself, who kind of wake up one day and truly appreciate their natural beauty and what it has to offer. i also feel like you guys help us curly girls not feel so alone in this journey.... thanks!! all of you ladies are so inspiring!

being a role model should not be on the lap of these young ladies that is on this show it should be in the hands of the parents. 90 percent of what kids learn is learn by parents not being around the kids.

I'm glad I watched this video. You girls seem so genuine and wise. And I too hope that I will be a good role model for the next generation.

hey I love this show I'm subscribed and I would love to be on this show but that would never happen sense the series already started and I don't live in Denver so I decided that I could just watch and enjoy instead

+Naptural85 This is very cool!! I love the positivity! Whitney you're a great example of success, your a hard (brilliant)worker with a humble spirit, you're beautiful on the inside and out and you do a wonderful job with Olivia(Filipe does too!)Thanks for sharing the tweet, I may have never know about this series!! LOL, talk about "fearlessness," Olivia doing that rock climbing with no assistance on yesterdays vlog, she's absolutely amazing! Oh for anyone wondering it was a kid climb at the park, the baby wasn't climbing the Rocky Mountains lol!

This is my favorite episode of Defining Beauty!!I just really liked this topic. I haven't had a chance to inspire confidence on the next generation yet, because my little brother is pretty bold as it is now. lol I'm working on my sister, trying to get her to stop comparing herself to other females and I plan on mentoring in January. It just really upsets me how often our intelligence is shocking to people, our beauty is under represented, and I just hope that when I have kids in the far future(I'm only 18, we gotta get through college. lmao) they wont feel pressured to straighten their hair, or deny and separate themselves from their own people to feel included and comfortable.

I love the defining beauty series. It's so inspiring to see empowered WOC doing it and doing it big!
SoulStyleBeauty (3 years ago)
LOVED THIS! It's so important to strengthen the kids (at this moment especially) by letting them know that they are beautiful. I will always tell them that beauty lies in your character not your image. Btw, I love the fact that you sing that song to your daughter because I sing to my niece lol!

I teach Kindergarten so that is the perfect platform :) for me to show little girls how to embrace their natural beauty by being a model everyday myself, how I walk, talk, wear my natural hair etc. Show them how to effectively speak up for themselves, value and respect themselves as well as others regardless of how different or how similar they may be with another friend.  Added bonus to this is giving little boys, our future men, examples on how little girls and women should carry themselves ;)

Thanks Nik Scott for saying that your daughter does not have to SPEAK like everybody else. I am so tired of beautiful black and young women trying to sound European. It's just not necessary. Speaking standard English is necessary only. Keep your dialect and be you.
