Faith wrote, “I was just sitting in the commons area at school, stressing cause I had an assignment due in 20min and this girl randomly came up to me, said "Hey sorry if this is weird but I want you to have this", handed me a sticky note, and walked away. It said "SMILE! It makes you even more beautiful" and had the site URL on the side. When I read the note I was confused but it made me feel good. I suffer from a lot of self-esteem issues, mostly from being bullied when growing up and being somewhat overweight. But reading that note just made me feel really really good. I now have it stuck to my laptop so I can see it every time I get online (which is a lot).”
