I initially purchased the book to support a friend. However, this book has been a life changing gift to my daughter and I. It provides a conversation starter to address the multiple issues that impact girls and women of color. The lessons throughout the book teach young girls to embrace their inner beauty, despite the negative images presented within our culture and/or society. The stories make you laugh and cry as you relate to your own childhood memories. The authors provide a valuable experience within a book that takes us a lifetime to learn. The stories shed light on personal challenges of self esteem, colorism, and suicide which lets us know we are not alone. The book is instrumental because it adds depth to your personal tool box as a young girl. It provides teen girls struggling to define themselves, the strength and hope to remain resilient. I will encourage my daughter to read this book multiple times to understand that her B.E.A.U.T.Y is defined by her. This book is a must read for all teen girls, because we live in a world that misguides the definition of beauty. Thanks so much for this awesome book that we can share with our daughters.

I purchased Letters to Our Daughters for myself and my 12 year old daughter. She read it first and said she enjoyed the book and would read another one written by the author. I read it as well and I am so proud of Aisha. I’ve known her since we were 11 years old and she did an amazing job. This book is sure to be an inspiration to girls everywhere.

Songstress Kierra Sheard sings a song entitled, “Flaws”. Some of the words are, “You love my flaws. They make me beautiful”. Letters to our daughters is a compilation of experiences from authors whose lives have been impacted by people who labeled, judged, bullied and shamed them into believing that what was perceived as “flaws” made them not good enough for whatever goal they wanted to accomplish. Whether it was the color of their skin, their size, hair texture or ability to grasp that seemingly impossible math problem, many of us can relate to their pain and the struggles of not being accepted. One author’s story entitled “Perfectly Imperfect”, remarked of how easy it is to buy the lie that says the grass is greener on the other side and how experiences in her life allowed her to become stagnate until one day she realized that she was “perfectly imperfect”! Letters to our Daughters is a brilliantly written book that helps young people break free from the labels others placed on them and how to live a limitless life.

I’ve always seen you as a strong individual, I remember you before you married, had children and I always knew that you would be “strong on your feet”. I can see how important it is to have a good foundation and support of one’s education and social skill-set, which gives you a canvas to paint your life with. It also, allows you to be flexible in life choices, we (women) do have and possess the ability to choose right from wrong, or good and evil.
I have twin sons, and that’s hard sometimes, because I had to support their growth, separately and I always wanted them to have their own identity..even though they are identical. I had chosen way before I married to send my children to college, and in my head that was not an option (They both graduated from college). I also, knew I needed to align myself with the person (husband) who had that same idea.
As a Black woman I’ve seen that I had to work harder than my counterpart, had to be the best at what I wanted to achieve. I feel that the faith and parental foundation laid before me was very key to my life. My Grandfather always said, “you can do, what ever you put your mind to”. That has resinated in my life. As woman I was always questioned about my choices (Drafting, drawing blueprints, engineering ideas) or to do what was a man’s job, or told I could not build a concrete wall (I did)…I never stop listening to what my Grandfather said… and I said it to my son’s later as they began their choices in life. I wanted them to believe in theirselves first.
I also, have been mentors to many Black women; and some I didn’t know that they were watching me to mold their life after.
I agree, with your words of wisdom from the book. “you are not in competition with anyone”. I say, be yourself the person God made, (Psalms 139:14). Women can be and do whatever you put your mind to. Don’t immitate (copy), duplicate, or borrow someone elses identity. Be yourself, don’t conform, never recreate but, demonstrate who God bless you to be.
Thank you for, such a strengthening request, it was for such a time as this. I needed this light. It made me lift up my head again, in a time of need.
Thank you my sister, stay focused, and may God bless you today and always!
“Keep standing strong on your feet”
