Here at the Candy HQ, we believe that beauty comes in all colors, shapes, and sizes. There's no one standard look that sets the trend of what "beautiful" really is. In a super chill, laid-back interview with Teen Vogue, Alessia Cara shares her thoughts on the first time she thought she was beautiful. The "Scars to Your Beautiful" singer recalls the exact moment when she felt that being truly beautiful really didn't have a lot to do with how she looked but more about what she could to help others find their own true beauty. Click the play button below to watch her video and find out who her very first role model is, her first starstruck moment, and more!
We know it can be difficult to feel beautiful when you're constantly told—on social media, on TV, in movies—that you have to look a certain way to be considered pretty. But believe us when we tell you that true beauty shines from within when you're kind to people, when you speak with respect, and when you set aside your judgment before anything else. So go ahead and discover what makes you beautiful—act on your passions, share your heart with people, and own your idea of beauty!
