This is my ten year old little sister, Aubrey. Back at the end of May, she got her head shaved for St. Baldrick’s in support of kids with cancer. Recently, however, she’s been going on about how she now hates her hair because she doesn’t think of herself as pretty, anymore. She said that because she doesn’t have long hair, she’s not beautiful. I disagree; I think she’s a gorgeous little girl.
To prove to her that she’s beautiful and it doesn’t matter what length of hair she has, I told her I was going to post this picture of her on Tumblr. I’m hoping you guys can help teach her a lesson about beauty and how you don’t have to be cookie-cutter perfection in order to be beautiful because I just want her to learn, while she’s young, to love herself no matter what. I want her to grow up with the self-esteem that I never had.
