Dare to be YOU

TallSWAG was Featured on Essence.com for their amazing Dare to Be You Campaign! I'm elated. Over the moon. Giddy. This tall girl is doing the happy dance and won't be stopping any time soon.

Why am I so happy?

Besides the obvious reason of being on the prestigious magazines website, it's that the post may have reached a tall person out there who needed to hear that they are unequivocally beautiful!  Say it loud and never forget to say it proud...tall is beautiful!

I wasn't always this confident.  I didn't always dare to be me.  I am remarkably grateful and feel truly blessed to be in the position that I am today...a tall, confident woman who today and everyday DARES TO BE ME!

Dare to be YOU!

Dare To Be YOU! Tall is beautiful. Never forget it:) Click to find out what the campaign is all about.

.....And that was how I found your site! lol.....Wonderful site BTW :) lots of great information, and very heartwarming. I am a 6 feet tall African whose grandad was 7 feet. I had the longest time accepting my height, and my mom, a DJ on a radio station at the time, used dedicate songs for me to encourage my self esteem. Now as a mom of two, I am passing the love on to my children. Thank you and God bless you!
