A few weeks ago I shared my story of how my Mother’s image affected my natural hair journey and my definition of beauty (you can read my story here) with Celebrity Makeup Artist, Kay Montano and BAFTA Awarding-winning Actress, Thandie Newton for their new beauty site, ThandieKay. Today I wanted to share Thandie’s candid discussion in 2011 with Ted Talks on her journey of “Embracing Otherness, Embracing Myself”. If you not have heard her incredibly movie journey, you will be inspired on embracing your true self without the defining mold created by others.
