Eleven-year-old Anthony McIntosh struggles to love his dark skin. He doesn’t have any friends and believes he’s unattractive or smart. In fact, his mother makes him cut his afro because thick, natural hair is considered to be “unacceptable”. Yet, his substitute teacher and a special friend help him overcome his struggles, and Anthony quickly learns how to use his experiences to help bring change to his entire school and community. Thrones not Cells uniquely illustrates how a young boy’s fight for acceptance transforms into a surprising victory of confidence, self-worth, and educational excellence. He learns how to be comfortable in his black skin without compromising his African heritage and encourages others who were struggling just like him to love themselves.

I was searching my name on google lol and I found this picture of myself in 2016. I confess I am chocked 🤣 I just can't believe how skinny I was. Like girl do your ever eat?! 🤪
If you are wondering why my hair looks so long, it is because I used to wear hair extensions.
I represented my state in the Miss Brazil 2016.❤️
