Artist Creates Dolls With Vitiligo, Albinism & Burn Injuries to Help Improve Self Esteem
Positive self imagery is everything when you are a child. If you've spent your entire life with low self esteem, this can cause great psychological damage in your adult life. Being confident, self-assured and loving yourself is #Life.
As a child, love and acceptance of the external is arguably more important than the internal...well, initially anyway. Until they grow, learn and understand the importance of filters, it is important that they see beauty in themselves, their peers and in society. Kids are savage. Honest observations can be unintentionally (& intentionally) cruel.
Being able to look at and admire an image that you deem beautiful is a virtue. Being able to see your own reflection in that image is a blessing. Check out this video of these gorgeous dolls which were created to help kids who have Vitiligo, Albinism, who suffer from burns and have other unique characteristics.
