Growing up, L’Oreal suffered from low self-esteem as a result of not seeing herself, a young Black woman, represented in the teen magazines she subscribed to. She shared with us how she vividly remembers praying to God to make her White so she’d be “beautiful.” Since then, She has dedicated her life to empowering young women of color. Listen to our conversations with her about her mission to empower women and girls, one story at a time.
