Alexis wrote, “I posted these notes in my school bathroom to help some random girl feel beautiful about herself. I’m 17 and I’m still struggling with low self-esteem. I’ve never felt beautiful, but when I see positive notes like these I can’t help but smile and actually feel beautiful for once, even if it’s just for a minute.
