LOVE YOUR SKIN

Move! - - EDITOR’S NOTE -

I was born in Namibia to a Namib­ian fa­ther and a South­ern African mother.

My trou­bles started at school. I was the only dark-skinned per­son in class and the other kids would make fun of me. Now I’m a 24-year-old wo­man who is proud of my skin tone and never let any of my past hud­dles de­fine me.
