Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

It might be hard to believe, but I am the kind of girl that wouldn't do any type of plastic surgery on my body unless, my  health requires to. I simply do not understand the concept of changing your entire face to get more attention to people. I do understand that it is hard to love your body, because I've been in that situation. I used to be often teased about being chubby when I was younger, or even when I had a lot of pimples, but somehow, I learned that plastic surgery is not the right answer to feel more confident about your body. I decided to start working out, and become more active, and throughout the years, I managed to lose the weight that I wanted to lose, and with the time my pimples were almost completely gone. Working out is not for just losing weight, but somehow it helps to improve your self- esteem and confidence. It gives you the great feeling that you have accomplished something. I see plastic surgery as an illusion, or a costume, because you are showing all the people you have met someone who you are not. Some people, once they get any type of surgery, they become addicted to it, and continue to do more and more to a point in which it looks creepy and ugly. The right people will love you no matter how you look, remember that the ultimate beauty lies within your personality and soul. If you ever feel bad about yourself, just look yourself in the mirror and say " I am beautiful," this cheesy thing actually helps to feel better about yourself.
