“Find every way to love yourself, because you’ve got all the things you need to be great. Sometimes I would be sitting next to other entertainers, and I would dim myself because I felt like I didn’t want to offend them, or they got more money than me, more record sales. What I’m saying is love yourself no matter what. Embrace your greatness.”  People Magazine

“Everywhere you go, kids can be mean.” “In school, classmates openly expressed their opinions about me and made fun of the ‘weird’ way I spoke. Hearing me translate Spanish into English and jumbling phrases into things like ‘house brown’ or ‘car big’ would usually provoke much laughter. After that, I became extremely self-conscious. To this day, I still check myself before I say anything, like, ‘Is this cool to say? Is this going to make me fit in?'” Isabela added, “Embracing my culture. I realized it’s what makes me unique. Embracing who we are is what leads us home.” GL

“I love being married [to musician Domino Kirke]- I’m so thankful to not be concerned with trying to intrigue and charm people. Our culture is enmeshed in trying to find a partner. And I think it has a lot less to do with finding the other person than with finding contentment in yourself.” Cosmopolitan Magazine

“My story is not one I could’ve ever expected. I never thought I’d have to loose everything to gain even more. But I lost my spot and I gained a husband who roots for me, a beautiful baby boy who looks at me like I am his entire world. Two and a half years ago when I walked out of that NBC building, I was in a fog, not knowing that so many of us lose things we think are important, and we have no idea that something better is right there. I’m from the South, and there’s a saying: “It’s not a setback; it’s a setup for something else.” That loss set me up for, yes, a dream job but also my baby, my husband, my family. I just couldn’t see it coming.” People Magazine

Jennifer Garner

When asked how Jennifer Garner would describe her high-school self she replied, “Band-geek chic. I was so not one of the pretty girls that I just bypassed insecurity and didn’t see myself as attractive at all. It was not part of my life. [But] I felt good about myself back then! That is the lucky trick. Looks weren’t a big deal in my family. I don’t think that my parents ever said, “You’re pretty,” and so we just didn’t think about it.”
