What do I see when I look in the mirror? – Evelyn Toona


What do I see when I look in the mirror? – Evelyn Toona

I see the multiple scars on my anatomy

I see the bad case of acne

I see my oily skin and uneven complexion

My crooked teeth and imperfect smile

I see my oversized bosoms,

Not-so-flat tummy, flabby arms and jiggly thighs.


But what I don’t see is the term ‘ugly’.

What I see is beauty beyond comparison

I see: Perfect Imperfection

Genuine beauty that cannot be surgically forged.

I have the occasional surge of insecurity coursing through my veins

Just like everyone does.

But being able to smile on a daily basis

And be authentic and true to myself

That, in itself, makes me beautiful.

Women and girls all around the world:

You Are Beautiful.

My name is Kriszti Bottyan (23) and I am the Editor of Teenzone Magazine. This means that all content goes through me before it reaches you. I graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2015 and I am currently completing my post-grad in Applied Languages. I am admittedly addicted to E! but I am also into the more serious content about society and about topics concerning YOUR future. Ultimately, you are my number one priority. We have migrated to a digital platform that is more suitable to you, our readers. We are continuously grateful for your support and in return promise to deliver. We will not disappoint!
