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.
