What is the definition of ugly?
Because of many so-called “beauty standards”, Tiara Shafiq feels she is. In her home country, Malaysia, where most people have dark skin, fair skin is touted as the ideal of loveliness. An Australian size 12-14 translates to a XXL. And smooth, hair-free legs is also an expected feature of a “beautiful” woman.
Yet, I’m sure many of you will agree with me when I say Tiara embodies beauty. She has no desire to “fix” her appearance, and is comfortable and confident with her body. She is not a Photoshopped clone of the “perfect woman”. She is an Imperfect Woman, as are we all. And she has a smile that lights up a room. Thank you for sharing this post, Tiara.
