“When European Ideals and standards of beauty mean absolutely nothing.” -Kye
"throughout the world we have people that do not notice each other's essence and humanity" -Kye
Everyone's culture is unique and beautiful. But it's important to display each cultures various beauty. Not just one type. Which is what mainstream media does. It's important for everyone of multiple cultures to know and celebrate what is beautiful about themselves. Kye's way of breaking prejudices and stereotypes is amazing to me!
Very smart young lady named Kye "Broke the Internet" while heading to prom and also inspired me to write this blog post.
She's a very smart 18 year old. In addition to aspiring to be a designer she should also consider becoming a writer. Articles featuring Kye talk about her ground breaking prom dress. Which was beautifully sketched and designed by her. The Afro-centric print, vibrant color of the gown is breathtaking and she's rocking her hair in a perfectly coiffed Afro!
She is beautiful and so is that prom gown but her words are what's more impressive.
It's exactly what society needs to embrace. It's also for people who have felt embarrasses to be themselves!
Be yourself and don't live life with prejudice. Stereotypes are just opinions that plague your existence. When you embrace those things you're stunting your growth mentally and spiritually. This negativity will only manifest within you breeding more negativity. It's a pivotal part of life to live prejudice free, be cultured, creative and charismatic.
Kye stated "I believe that in order for society to gain a wider horizon, we have to be willing to acknowledge other people from differences, beliefs, morals, and values."
Today everyone should try to talk to someone new! Spark up a convo, BE YOURSELF, without prejudice... Ya never know it can lead to something beautiful!
She ended her writing with an uplifting note on embracing who you are. "Don’t let anyone define you. Beautiful things happen when you take pride in yourself. #blackgirlsrock #kyebreaktheinternet
