CHS Highlight: Mikiyah Parker

“Before, I used to see myself as fat,

“Before, I used to see myself as fat," Coppell High School junior Mikiyah Parker said. "My skin was too dark, my hair too nappy, my nose was too oily. It was a very long process, but I finally woke up in the morning, and stopped being tired of looking at every single flaw on my body. It made me feel great. It made me feel like I could put on anything, and still say that I look beautiful, that I was going to have the greatest day of my life. Today I can look into my mirror, and just say ‘Hey, you look beautiful today. You’re going to rock everyone’s world when you get to school, girl. You’re gonna look amazing, whether you are in pajamas or not.'"
