    Your story really touched my heart because I am going through the same exact situation. I feel that people will accept me if I lose weight, get better grades, and be like other girls in my community. Since childhood I have faced this but I have always told myself that I am unique. However, ever since I have started college, things are on the dark side. PI have been mentally down recently as no one seemed to understand what I am going through. Your story made me feel like I am not alone. Thank You for that. 😘

    I agree, the lack of feeling connected as a women, with myself let alone other women. All of us women need to stand together, as your campaign has so beautifully done Amena ❤️ Is to begin breaking down the walls of stereotype and to begin re-building bridges. End of the day, we all feel and we all love. That should be the core of our interactions

    I just had a hard night, where I felt that numbness and couldn’t understand what to do to make myself feel better. I woke up with the sinking feeling of this is how everyday is going to be forever. I came across your video and Amena what you have said inspired me and for the first time I felt a calm. I am enough for for me. It’s going to be a motto for me and I thank you for this little spark I felt today.
