Video: Lupita Nyong’o on Beauty

As someone who believes all humans are beautiful, I loved Lupita Nyong’o’s recount of her journey from self-hate to acceptance.

What my mother meant when she said you can’t eat beauty is that you cannot rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us–what is fundamentally beautiful–is compassion, for yourself and for those around you.
