“We live in a cold and lonely world,
so people should do everything it takes to find
peace and solace for their mind and body.”
My name is Meganne, and I am a 27-year-old beauty and fashion enthusiast from Paris, the most romantic city in the world. However, I was not always posing in front of the glimmering Eiffel Tower. I was born in French Guiana before my family moved to France when I was 13.
Growing up in the Caribbean and the things I learned by traveling and experiencing different cultures molded the person I am today. I always believe that life is what you make of it. Like Forrest Gump’s infamous box of chocolates, both good and bad experiences give me all the strength and inspiration I need to advance my career.
I am an easy-going person who thrives on simple things, such as spending time with friends for a laugh and eating out at restaurants. Music and dance are what I am most passionate about because I was inspired by my mom since I was 5 years old. No matter how many years go by, I will never stop dancing, especially hip-hop and a traditional dance from my country called Kasekô. Dancing alone in front of the mirror always makes me feel magnificent and beautiful because it boosts my confidence to take on the world.
“All the answers we seek are already within us because we are the key to our beauty and happiness, and we can accomplish anything if we focus on loving ourselves.”
When I get asked what the definition of beauty is, I always answer that there is none. Beauty is so subjective and personal. Everyone has their own unique style and natural beauty on the outside and from within. To me, everybody is beautiful because we are all so different with extraordinary qualities to share with each other.
I will never be a fan of traditional beauty standards because they foster insecurities and cause low self-esteem. People deserve to look and feel their best without judgment. Style is how we can show others who we are without needing to speak, which is why I believe that everyone should express themselves freely and embrace their authenticity.
My skincare routine comes from a place of love and admiration from an early age. As a small child, I always watched my mom take care of herself and never forget how rejuvenated she felt after using the best products that exfoliated and softened her skin. Now that I am older, I can confirm that I still feel beautiful every day because I enjoy looking after myself. Doing my hair and eyebrows makes me feel like a brand-new woman each time, and my personality is what ultimately captures hearts.
We live in a cold and lonely world, so people should do everything it takes to find peace and solace for their mind and body. We should all conjure our inner strength to spread kindness and create the safest place to be where we can love and cherish each other’s natural beauty.
All the answers we seek are already within us because we are the key to our beauty and happiness, and we can accomplish anything if we focus on loving ourselves.
