A baby is born. It’s a girl! She is doted on; cherished and protected. Her intelligence is encouraged. Her stubbornness is admired. Until one day, her body begins to change. Then she is awkward: losing weight here, gaining weight there. Body parts stretch, fill in, and fill out. Until one day, although she is still just a child, the world looks at her differently.
She is faceless.
But faceless has a name. She has a purpose. She exists and has worth in this life. She will not be resigned to the corner as just another pretty face. And you — you who think she is here only for your viewing pleasure — you are in for a surprise! Her intelligence; her strength; her ambition; and yes, wonderfully, her feminine beauty, is taking this world by storm. She is a queen; a princess; a teacher; a friend. She is more than the sum of her body parts. Take note, for she will not go quietly into the sunset. Those days are behind her, and we are better for it.
