The first interview with Wana Udobang of Inspiration FM, set the scene for the day as she revealed her personal struggles with beauty and self acceptance. Starting from childhood, Wana discussed how her perception of self had affected her self-esteem and relationships with men. She talked about how she had over compensated with her character in order to make up for what she felt was a less than perfect exterior and how her path to self acceptance and realization of beauty took place.

But it wasn’t only the panelists who shared. Guests at the event also shared their personal beauty struggles. The biggest takeaway was just how similar women are in terms of our perceived flaws, why sisterhood is important, and why we must continue to have these sorts of conversation, not only for us but for the next generation of women.
