Evie 

Why are you excited about BBU?

I really enjoy helping people find their style. It is just an awesome way to express your personality to others. Also, I like to keep up with trends so I can find out what looks best on me that also suits my personality.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

For me, I’ve been in the position of being unsatisfied and insecure about myself and my body. I found that searching for every little imperfection is exhausting, pointless, and not how God wants me to spend my time. I feel that comparing myself to others really held me back from living the full life that God wanted for me.

The Bible says that every person is wonderfully made by God in His image and likeness. I want every woman to have total confidence knowing that God made you and He loves all of you, no matter what you think of yourself.

Favorite Bible verse:

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.  Romans 12:21

AUTUMN

Why are you excited about BBU?

I love the powerful women that are involved with it as well as clothing. I also love the positive message and diversity that BBU inspires. I feel welcomed and encouraged to stand out with my style.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

I grew up being insecure about my height, which at times made me want to wear clothing that helped me blend in. It wasn’t until my late teens that I learned to embrace my insecurities and stop dressing to hide myself. I want to encourage women to overcome their insecurities and feel secure in their own bodies.

Favorite Bible verse:

I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4

GRACE

Why are you excited about BBU?

I'm excited about Be Beautiful U because I want young woman to see how beautiful they are and feel confident in their bodies. God made each one of us unique and special in our own ways and I, as well as other women, need that reminder. Be Beautiful U is an awesome way to experience God's plan for us through community and clothes that will help everyone feel special in their own way. It's such a nice break from what the media says, and a true glimpse of what God says about our beauty.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

It is important for me to encourage women in their beauty and personal struggles with insecurities because I have been there and I know how it feels. I have felt that pain of comparing myself to other women and feeling like I wasn't pretty enough, but then I discovered that God designed me perfectly and that He never makes mistakes. Finding my security in Jesus instead of comparing myself to others helped me feel more confident and I learned to love myself, imperfections and all. I want other women to feel loved and cared for through Jesus and know that they were wonderfully made by the God of the universe, and He doesn't make mistakes.

Favorite Bible verse:

...looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14

Mikaela

Why are you excited about BBU?

I’m excited about Be Beautiful U because it’s a community of girls empowering other girls and everyone, especially women, deserve something like that.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

It’s important for me to encourage other women because it’s kind of like a domino effect that can really impact other parts of their lives. It’s also helped me so much to embrace how God made me, and I want other girls to feel that same love and acceptance for themselves. Confidence really empowers women to do what they need to do and fulfill their God-given purpose.

Favorite Bible verse: I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Alexis

Why are you excited to be a BBU Ambassador?

I'm excited to be apart of such an uplifting movement where women lift one another up in a healthy way. I love being able to share how God feels about each and every one of us being fearfully and wonderfully made.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

I know I've struggled a lot with my appearance, being Hispanic and black, I didn't feel like I fit in with anyone or any one group. My skin color is different, my hair curls in a different way, and those are the features that stood out the most when I was growing up. I didn't know that all of my differences were unique and being unique is beautiful. God does not want us to look alike, He wants us to celebrate our differences. He formed us in our mother’s womb! I want to be able to encourage other beautiful Black, biracial and Latina girls to feel beautiful in their own skin and be confident in standing in God's Word. Being beautiful isn't just an outer appearance, it stems from an area of confidence and strong foundations in Christ.

Favorite Bible verse: For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. Romans 1:16

Why are you excited to be a BBU Ambassador?

I’m excited to be an ambassador to use my personal style, relationship with Jesus and my influence on social media to inspire other women to seek after finding their worth in Jesus, expanding their wardrobe to share with others their personal style and helping them to use their influence on social media to inspire their friends.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

It’s important for me to encourage women in their beauty and worth because I want women to know that they are enough and they are loved the way they were divinely created. This is important to me because I personally have struggled with not feeling enough and have struggles with trying to be perfect for validation from other people. Whether that was through performing in sports and school, trying to lose weight, wearing a ton of makeup or even looking at others and trying to be more like then instead of me. Because I have felt like this I am passionate about other girls knowing their worth so they have peace that they are loved perfectly and unconditionally.

Favorite Bible verse: So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19

Why are you excited to be a BBU Ambassador?

I am excited to speak towards young women and encourage them to become comfortable in their own uniquely beautiful bodies.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

I have always struggled with comparing myself to other woman and feeling as if I don’t measure up because I don’t look exactly like them (which I feel comes from social media in our generation). But I have been working on my perception and found love for my body the way it is because it’s uniquely beautiful, just as everyone else’s. It’s important for me to be encouraging in this area because all women should strive to find beauty in their insecurities.

Favorite Bible verse: The Lord has made everything for its own purpose. Proverbs 16:4

Why are you excited to be a BBU Ambassador?

I am excited to be a BBU ambassador because of what BBU stands for. I am excited to be able to use my social media platforms to encourage other women and remind them that they are individually unique, beautiful and worthy. I want to remind them that there is no one way to dress or express yourself rather their personality, what they want to say to the world, and their unique preferences come together to reveal their own personal style that they feel comfortable and confident in. My mom used to tell my sister and I growing up that we were beautiful inside and out. Now that I am older I really appreciated that she taught us this lesson at a young age. Beauty isn't defined by the make up you way or how tall your heels are, beauty is defined by your character and your love for one another. Jesus makes us beautiful both inside and out.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

When I think about why I am so passionate about encouraging other women though their beauty struggles and insecurities my mind always lands on an oh too common phrase that I heard a lot throughout my years in Greek Life. That phrase was 'I hate myself' and always came out of a friends mouth in a sarcastic tone usually when retelling an embarrassing situation that happened earlier that day. I was also known to say this phrase so often that at one point I started to believe it. I hated who I was, what my body looked like, and most of all what I did to be noticed. Here's the thing about beauty that I learned the hard way. Beauty doesn't fit in a box or in certain body shape. It doesn't have a specific personality, hair color or eye color. Beauty is raw. Beauty is deep. Beauty is selfless and full of grace. I want to encourage women to see the beauty that God sees in them everyday. I don't want women to just know they are worthy. I want them to understand that they are worthy and feel the love the Lord has for them. I want the women around me to be able to say "I love who I am" and mean it.

Favorite Bible verse: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

Ashley

Why are you excited to be a BBU Ambassador?

I love to be inspired by other people’s personal style so I hope that being involved does the same for other people!

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

In today’s culture we are pressured to fit into a mold and to look the same when we are all SO different. I want to be able to encourage people to embrace what makes them unique!

Favorite Bible verse: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

Laura

Why are you excited to be a BBU Ambassador?

I'm excited to be a BBU ambassador because it's a great program to help girls my age feel more confident about who they are as one of God's daughters.

Why is it important for you to encourage women in their beauty/ personal struggles with beauty and insecurities?

It’s important to me to encourage girls because it’s so easy to believe the lies society tells us about how to be “perfect”. I’ve struggled with insecurities and confidence issues all my life. I’ve always been the tallest girl in the room, and it’s one of my biggest insecurities. I still struggle with so many insecurities on a daily basis, but when we support and encourage each other we can become more confident together. Being able to encourage girls through BBU, is my chance to help girls believe that they are beautiful inside and out.

Favorite Bible verse: ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.’ Jeremiah 29:11-12
