We took on the #i_dont_do_uglychallenge, it's meant to bring awareness about bullying, cancer and getting rid of anything ugly that's going on in your life.
Many of you don't know that we were affected by bullying during middle school and high school. We migrated from colombia at the age of 12 and spoke little English but we didn't let that obstacle stop us from going to school and working hard to learn the language. While going to school, other kids bullied us, called us names because we didn't speak English. We couldn't defend ourselves so we just ignored it but in reality we would go home and cry; it really affected us for several years. We became the people we are because of the struggles that life threw at us and we are stronger because of them but no one should bullied and we need to bring awareness and put a stop to it.
It starts with the parents, teaching their kids to love one another no matter what. There's too much hatred in this world and we believe we can change that if we all put some effort about loving and giving more to our community ❤️👯
