Born Beautiful story @christajames13

 

Tell us about yourself in 50 words or less. We want to know one or two things that you'd want someone to know about you?

I'm a model and actress living in Kansas City, MO. Musical theatre is my passion and I love to sing and dance!

What are you most grateful for in life?

The people who I've connected with so far.

Who do you find beautiful – and what makes them beautiful to you?

My family, for their outlook on life and the way they live consistently with their beliefs and love for all.

Was there ever a time that you felt ugly? What happened and how did you react?

I never felt beautiful in middle school, but I know most of us have been there!

Based on the time above, when did you realize that you were beautiful?

It took much more time than just getting out of my "awkward stage" to realize that beauty is more than skin-deep.

What makes you beautiful?

The way I choose to embrace life on good days and bad.

How has your idea of beauty changed over the years?

I grew up subconsciously thinking that my worth and value lay in my physical beauty, and that when I lost that I would have nothing to live for. As I get older I'm learning that, as cliche as it sounds, beauty is more than skin-deep and what's inside honestly counts a whole lot more.

If you could go back in time and give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?

Don't let what boys think of you define how you feel about yourself.
