Maromi, Full-time Mom

Growing up, Maromi felt pressured into accepting the vision of beauty she saw in Japanese pop culture, but a face full of freckles always made her feel like an outsider. It wasn’t until she saw how other countries celebrated beauty that she realised what makes you different can also make you beautiful.

Living in different cities across Asia and Europe helped Maromi quickly change her perspective on what defines real beauty. The freckles she once considered a beauty flaw became a defining characteristic when meeting new people. And eventually, they even made her feel beautiful and special.  

Today, Maromi is determined to pass this experience on to her young daughter, so that she too can celebrate the features that make her different and beautiful.
