A Girl Like Me

Kiri Davis, 16, is the maker of this amazing film called "A Girl Like Me". It was featured in our latest issue under 'Five Things we Love' and I just wanted to link to it so you could all see how great it was! Here are Davis' own words regarding what she wanted to accomplish by making this film:

I wanted to make a film that explored the standards of beauty imposed on today's black girls. How do these standards affect her self-esteem or self-image. Through making this film I learned a lot about where some of these standards might stem from.
