THIS IS NOT A WHITE GIRL/BOY'S INDO-INSPIRED BINDI BLOG.
Bindis originate & are still part of south asian culture & are not some temporary fad that western capitalism can monetize off of with the premise of it being a exotic symbol for westerners.

"Words can hurt. I get teased for being dark skinned even now, at 25. Relatives do not see how I feel when they compare me with my siblings: "they are Fair and beautiful. You are Dark but beautiful.” It takes a lot of strength to overcome the small, insignificant word like “but.”
This prejudice starts at our own homes. My aunt is looking for a fair skinned bride to marry her dark skinned son, primarily for fair progeny. I want this mentality to stop! I want to give the generation to come a chance to be their own judge and jury of beauty!
I enrolled in modeling to inspire dark skinned women especially in Malaysia to be proud of themselves. It is a difficult road for me as dark skinned models are not preferred in Malaysian media industry. But I will live my dream on my terms. I will inspire change!
You don’t have to be model to inspire people that dark is beautiful, you can be a role model everyday in your life just by being yourself.”
