  • Are you ready?

  • I think girls probably experience it fresh out the womb.

  • Can't escape it. Like, you're born into it.

  • I think you always know, even when you're little that pretty and not pretty are two things.

  • The way that we talk to young girls as adults always involves looks.

  • Girls spend most of our adulthood trying to get over the fact that when we were young, all that we were told to be was pretty.

  • Oh God, I think it's, I think the pressure of pretty is coming from so many different places.

  • It's media.

  • Media affects men. Media affects women. I think it's a cycle.

  • A lot of my experiences about being pretty have to do with boys and whether or not they thought I looked nice.

  • It can really like mess you up at first.

  • You know. You'll be like, "Well, what? Why am I not good enough? Why am I not pretty enough? Why am I not cute enough?"

  • I needed validation from a guy or a good looking guy to feel that way.

  • Yes, I definitely think there is. It would be nice if they were all wrapped up in the same thing, but I think beauty is all over you.

  • Something that comes from the inside out. It's a combination of who I am and what I bring to the table.

  • Beautiful is something that can't be taken away from you.

  • I feel the most beautiful when I'm using my mind and when I'm with my friends.

  • Being around people who appreciate me for every ounce of what I am makes me feel beautiful.

  • I feel beautiful when I'm happy.

  • Being able to say that like, at the end of the day, I still don't care what anyone thinks.

  • I am who I am and I love that about me.

  • I feel you, girls. It's not easy.

  • Everyone, even the people you think are super pretty, has felt that way before.

  • And you will feel more pretty and more beautiful if you focus on the things that make you feel happy and beautiful.

  • Try and find your own inner beauty.

  • Find things that make you feel good about yourself.

  • Surround yourself with people who think you're beautiful, who think everything about you is actually beautiful, like the real you.

  • Be a person that you want to be and I think that will make you happy and pretty won't matter anymore.

Are you ready?
