If you’ve ever struggled to fit in, you may be able to empathize with a younger Shay Mitchell. In this interview, she shares how she used to use blonde tresses and colored contact lenses to hide her Filipina heritage.
Statistics show that more than one-third of young women (and more and more boys) have trouble with their identity. With time, many will gain a healthier perspective and grow out of those troubling behaviors. For Shay, it was traveling abroad that helped her come to a new perspective sooner.
Today she’s more embracing of a wider definition of beauty that includes her own and shares her story of identity crisis.
