Why We’re Kickstarting “Beautiful” - Luci’s Story
I battled an eating disorder in college, and it came to define me in ways I never expected. I
was extremely critical of myself, and I thought that unless I was thin, I didn't deserve to be
When I met Team Tempest and started freerunning my mind opened and my eyes began to see so much more than traditional beauty. Freerunning gave me the confidence I needed to
understand that I am good enough, I am pretty enough, and I have a lot to
offer just being myself. A person's beauty is not defined by how tall, thin, or
pretty they are - it is their soul,
beliefs, and morals that makes them Beautiful.
My ultimate goal for "Beautiful" is to inspire people in all walks
of life to open their eyes to non-traditional beauty. If I can inspire 1
father to accept his son for chasing his dreams or if I can inspire 1
little girl to embrace herself and be proud of her natural beauty then
this project will be a success. My hope is to help people to look and think of beauty differently and to overcome their personal insecurities. Who knows, maybe I will be able to open your eyes to a beauty you have never seen and empower you to overcome a fear.
