Buy your copy of Live Life Beautiful: Affirmations for Girls of Color today!

Windsor Mill, MDLive Life Beautiful: Affirmations for Girls of Color is a new book written by the founders of I Am Beautiful Global, Inc. (IAB). It is the first book to equip girls of color with the Foundation Elements of Beautiful (self-love, self-esteem, self-identity, self-pride and self-respect); encouraging words in the form of positive affirmations, and a concept to live life beautiful. The book contains 250 positive affirmations and explanations written specifically for girls of color as a self-help/motivational guide to live life beautiful.

According to co-author, Dr. Donnamaria Culbreth, “The most important focus for girls of color is to believe, with every fiber of their being, that the color of their skin is not a determining factor of what they can or will achieve in life. The power to live life beautiful is within all girls of color. If they think it and believe it, they will achieve it!”

Dr. Culbreth also noted, “We live in a society where we often hear stories of how girls of color are negatively labeled, stereotyped, often ignored, and treated disparately both consciously and unconsciously. Such treatment can and does affect their psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being.

Live life Beautiful

Affirmation topics include colorism, hair, standards of beauty, cultural identity, cultural pride, diversity, ethnicity, education, friendship, making good choices, self-love, self-esteem, self-respect, self-pride, self-identity, bullying, and STEM among other topics. By thinking, believing, and applying positive thought processes, the lives of girls of color will be transformed and as their inner beauty begins to radiate on the outside, they will live life beautiful.

According to Dr. Julie Jung-Kim, co-author, “It is important to build a society where girls of color are valued. In today’s culture, everywhere that girls of color turn, they see inaccurate depictions of themselves in the media, are told how they do not fit the ideal beauty standard, and face different forms of discrimination.”

Ada Elizabeth Culbreth, co-author, noted how the book encourages girls of color to embrace, love themselves and to reach for the stars. She says, “Believing in themselves and their ability to reach higher ground in life is paramount for every girl of color throughout the world.” Live Life Beautiful: Affirmations for Girls of Color encourages girls of color to learn, embrace, believe, think, practice, and apply positive thought processes to change self-perceptions, attitudes and behaviors.

The paperback edition of Live Life Beautiful: Affirmations for Girls of Color is available for purchase through Complexity Publishing, LLC. The e-book version is available at BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com, and Goodreads as well as other e-book websites.
