Our Skin Deep community is made up of people all over Australia, or overseas, and we love that we can share our vision with you all. Part of our dream (that you probably already know), is to continue to share positive messages about creating our own ideals, understanding people have a story, and embracing your own kind of beautiful. Thank you for being part of that story with us!
There is another important part of our dream though.
Robert Hoge embraces Ugly
Robert Hoge was born with deformed legs and a facial tumour. He has written the memoir ‘Ugly’ and his story was shared on Australian Story this week.
“This is actually a conversation I’d like to have about disability, and about beauty and about ugliness, and the first person I had to have that conversation was with myself, let’s not try and hide away difference and try and roll everyone into this one mess of a ball that just so everyone can be treated the same.” You can read more about Robert’s story here.
Not many of us think “happy” when we think of Mondays. Kristian Goodacre is the founder of the video blog Happy Monday, which aims to brighten the lives of its viewers with a video purely and simply about what makes people happy, every Monday morning. He started the project in 2012 as a way to chat to his family and friends who have positively impacted his life, about what makes them happy. A simple and brilliant idea.
