I was tapped by Blend in for WHAT?!™ founder and artist Nicole Updegraff (@cottoncandyplayground) to become an Official Ambassador for the Blend in for WHAT?!™ campaign.
I joined the ranks with a pretty amazing group of women which included models, actresses, celebrity hair stylists, life coaches, authors, entrpreneurs, wardrobe stylists, natural hair enthusiasts and fellow bloggers.
Fellow Blend in for WHAT?!™ Amassadors included Nikia Phoenix, P. Roy, Felicia Leatherwood, Victoria Sanders, Zara Green, Sabrina Boissiere, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Denise Watkins, Angela McCrae, Arkeedah McCormick, Merissa V. Grayson, Deya “Direct” Smith, and Pamela Jenkins.
Let’s face it, women and young girls are facing challenges with their beauty, self worth and body image through social media, television and movies everyday. Blend in for WHAT?!™ is a social intiative centered around acknowledging self-worth, building confidence and teaching women and girls to be their own standard of beauty.
We want to empower young girls and women to take a stand and say, “I am beautiful. I am confident. I am enough for me. These are my standards and nobody has the power to change them but me”.
We took a pledge on January 1st to upload a selfie with the hashtags #BlendInForWhat & #BlendInForWhat100K to raise awareness of the campaign but to also encourage other women and girls to be their own standard of beauty.
I am so honored to have been selected to be part of this campaign to empower women and girls all over the world!
