To My Daughter 


Since I wholeheartedly love and respect the writer of this beautiful letter, if I ever have a daughter, this would be exactly what I’d want to advice her.

PS: Love Samar equally! <3

Dear Samar,

I don’t know how old you will be when you read this. But I suppose you’ll be old enough to look in the mirror and scrutinize your skin and hair and eyes.

I hope that when you look in the mirror, you see a happy face, beautiful and confident.

When you look at your skin colour, you feel radiant and golden. I hope you don’t feel the need to pick up that face wash with ‘whitening pearls’, to lighten your coffee cream complexion.

When you look at your facial hair, whether light or dark, you don’t feel the need to get rid of it. Because maybe by then we would stop treating it like a disease.

When you want to wear a sleeveless dress at a concert, you don’t keep your arms down to hide the slightly darker underarms, because you know you’re brown, and it’s completely normal…
