In this article am going to share you the story of the most beautiful woman in the universe who never believed in herself since her childhood.Please ensure that you have followed me for more interesting articles.

This is the story of how Lupita Nyong’o became the most beautiful person in the world.It is for the all people who do not like their skin tone.When Lupita was a child she did not like how she looked.

Lupita,”I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful”.

Part of the reason was because she grew up watching Disney Movies filled with light skinned princesses.(photo courtesy).

Lupita,”some of my favorite books when I was growing up were Cinderella and Thumbelina and Beauty and The Beast and Rapunzel.And these were all women with light skin and blonde hair”.

The fictional Characters she loved looked nothing like her,so she started wondering if she would look better if she had a brighter skin.

Lupita,”There was always light skin on the Tv and in local ads.They were populated by the lighter skinned women.It made me feel uncomfortable with my own skin,and I wished to have skin that was different”.

Lupita who wanted to look more like the princesses started to pray for it.

Lupita,”My one prayer to God was that I would wake up lighter skinned.And everyday I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I had been the day before”.

This is the sad mentality we are being taught from the very young age.If you would ask a child for example the baby doll that is beautiful between the black and white doll,They will absolutely say the white doll is beautiful.We have have seen this in our surroundings that child do not like black dolls.

Things for Lupita changed when she saw the movie “THE COLOR PURPLE”.What she saw there changed the way she saw herself.(photo courtesy)

Lupita,”I couldn’t believe that the people were embracing a woman who look so much like me as complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome.And all over sudden Oprah was telling me it wasn’t”.

Ever since then ,she started to look at the world from a different perspective.She started working on accepting herself and growing as a person.It took many years but at some point,finally she became the best version of herself.

“What is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you.That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul”,says Lupita.

That’s how she became the first Kenyan woman to win an Oscar Award.Now she is on a mission to reach people like her.People who are not accepting their skin tone and don’t accept their looks.

She wrote a children’s book called Sulve giving darker skin children a chance to live in the world of imagination and magic,and not just imagine themselves as white princesses.In the end it was not her skin colour or just the way she looks that gave her a title of the most beautiful person in the world.It was how she found the beauty of acceptance,and now how she helps people around the world feel beautiful.(photo courtesy).

“I hope that my presence on yours screens and in magazines may lead you young girl on a similar journey.That you will feel the validation of your external beauty but also get to the deeper businessof being beautiful inside.There is no shade in that beauty”,advices Lupita Nyong’o.
