3. UCITA POHAN, Indonesia
My good friend @katarinaie once told me, sometimes the hardest bully comes from our inner voice, it starts when we’re looking into our own reflection in a mirror wishing to be in someone else’s shoes. She’s right. We create our own insecurities. ✨ One thing we should realize is our flaws make us human. Let’s stop thinking of what we don’t have and start to appreciate what we have. Show them your best angle. ✨ Stay fit, be healthy, think positive, and treat yourself right. Be the better version of you. That’s how you grow, that’s how you glow. ?: @ciawardhana

Over 30,000 followers on Instagram, Ucit, as her close friends call her has so many beautiful photographs that are massively outpouring with so much love and power that’s so infectious.
