BEFORE & AFTER
We went dark to suit her tanned skin and make sure her ‘rehab’ areas where full.
Remember the darker the colour the longer it lasts.
Love!!! Such a satisfying treatment for both my clients and myself.
#tbt#throwbackthursday this is me, in 2008 at my 8th grade graduation. My mom picked out this beautiful floral dress and cover up and the hijab and matched them together, I think she got them dress from Burlington. I hated this look though back then. She applied some makeup to my face, like fair and lovely because she probably thought it was foundation and kohl and a lipstick. I hated everything about this look. I was so mad and I started crying. I don’t know what I was expecting but I was so upset. I felt ugly. I was bullied for years for my weight by literally everyone. I was bullied for being the only black Muslim girl in my grade and even the school. I was bullied all the time and it’s so hard to think of. They always say it’s a cycle and that’s true because after I graduated middle school I was like this is the LAST time anyone will bully me, so I became a bully. This is terrible. I hated myself for it and I hated my weight and myself and my body and I was insecure and I had low self esteem. Anyway, I’m glad a hit puberty shortly after (yes very late, at 14) and it got worse. I was way too big in body for my age so I had to dress in ladies sizes, which also didn’t fit so I had to dress in women’s plus. It was so horrible. And it was expensive. Purchasing women’s clothes for a 13/14/15 year old. My mother would take a whole Saturday and take me to Conway to try and find an outfit for me for Eid or for the new school year. And she would find something and be like try this on and it wouldn’t fit, so she would get something else and again and again. And I think at some point she outsourced to my grandma back in Sudan to custom make a few shirts for me and send them over to the US with anyone traveling. It was such an arduous experience to go though for everyone in my family. My brothers could always find clothes even though they were over weight. And my sister was skinny so she always found something to wear. Dressing me was exhausting mentally, physically, emotionally and financially. I always keep this picture with me to keep me humble. I’m now -65lbs in my journey. #mybklyn
