As a Filipino-Chinese woman growing up in America, I was constantly told — by my classmates, by movies and TV shows, and by commercials — that the most beautiful girls in the world had fairer skin, lighter hair, and eyes that didn't look like mine. Looking at myself in the mirror, with my tan skin, dark hair , and eyes that I used to describe as "poop-colored," I walked through most of grade school struggling to love my features. In high school, I started seeing girls who look like me on TV. And even though there was still a scarcity of Asian celebrities I could name, I considered it a victory. I started feeling like progress was being made. A few years after that, I discovered YouTube and social media, and in the process, found an entire community of beauty bloggers that made me feel truly represented.
