I grew up being called a "midget" by friends and family, who believed it was endearing to call me so. But as a result, I have battled with the concept of beauty, self love and appreciation myself beyond my physical appearance for all of my life. However, it is when my 8-year-old daughter came back home to ask if she is "beautiful," that it hit me the most. "Changing the Conversation" is a personal series that speaks of beauty as not a bondange but a concept that frees you. Beauty is inclusive. Beauty is not this or that; pretty or ugly. Beauty exists beyond binaries.
