"Rare to me means, learning to be okay in my own skin. Being okay with my body regardless of what society deems as beautiful. Wearing my natural hair curl pattern regardless of what society deems as beautiful. I want to be my authentic rare self that I deem as beautiful."@keishlisette
“I am rare because of my imperfections. We are all imperfectly perfect and rare.”@ericaeisenmann
“Rare is represented in me in that I see myself the way I want to be seen, not the image that others may project on me.”@anadeportlandia
“Instead of wishing I was someone else I became the person I wish existed to realize it’s okay to be different, because to be different and own it in a society focused on one definition of beautiful is rare beauty.”@ehhwur
“Let's knock that image of perfection down. No one deserves to feel like they're not worthy of self-love. I want everyone to embrace themselves and love what makes then unique.”@tabatha_lhayes
“I am Rare because I know my worth and I know I have a beautiful story that is unique different and it’s ok to look apart and not look like everyone else.”@lydiaivy_baby
“It’s an amazing feeling to be able to see at least a little bit of yourself in another person, and I think if everyone realizes that we can collectively become more accepting and loving towards one another’s rarity.”@e.laux
“I go against all of the norms, I wear what I want and use makeup and fashion as an outlet to express my identity and sexuality. I believe the idea of going against "all things normal" is what makes me rare.”@orionjuarz
