Jennifer Elisabeth
“Being a Dream Girl is never going to be about what you look like or how much you weigh. After all, our physical appearances are just reflections of our inner worlds. What makes you a Dream Girl is your emotional sensitivity, your self-awareness, and your ability to communicate who you are effectively and compassionately in the world.”
Jennifer Elisabeth, Born Ready: Unleash Your Inner Dream Girl

Ishmael Beah
“Some nights the sky wept stars that quickly floated and disappeared into the darkness before our wishes could meet them. ”
Ishmael Beah, A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier
