Dark-skinned Girls Rock!: Janiece

Hey Everyone!

Hope you all are doing lovely and feeling great! Today for the Dark-Skinned Girls Rock! series, we're featuring a lovely reader of Cherrie Amore named Janiece. Find out more about her below!

Janiece
Everybody meet Janiece. She's a 40 year old bank manager from Chicago, Illinois!

Describe yourself in 3 words: Friendly, fun, and shy.

Tell us about your personal style.
 I would describe my personal style as modern-chic. I love to follow trends. My favorite item to wear is a dress. From modern to vintage, any dress will do. I am also learning to love prints. I often look to blogs for inspiration.

Who are your style icons? Tracee Ellis Ross, Rachael Roy, Mary Mary & Michelle Obama.

Have you ever struggled with self-identity issues because of your complexion? If so what are some things you did to accept yourself for who you are and love yourself? 
As a kid, I was often teased about being dark. I remember running home  from school and looking at myself in the mirror. I would say to myself  "I don't see anything wrong with my skin, it's pretty to me". Ever since then I have always loved my skin. It's sad when many people associate being dark with being ugly. But I think the perception of that is changing because there are so many beautiful dark women representing. GO DGR'S!!!!
Do you have any advice for other dark-skinned women that are struggling with accepting themselves because of the color of their skin?
I would tell them that dark skin is beauty and to love yourself and the skin that you are in.
What do you like most about being dark-skinned? 
I like that my dark skin is beautiful and unique. I am very proud of my dark skin.

Thank you sooo much Janiece for participating!! Love how you looked into the mirror and told yourself that nothing was wrong with your skin color although your childhood peers had a different opinion...they didn't know any better lol. You are beautiful lady and I love that pink dress; you are werking it! 

My dark-skinned ladies, if you are interested in participating in the DGR! series shoot me an email, cherrie.amore@gmail.com. I need you lovely ladies to submit interviews to keep this series going. So don't be shy! You DO NOT have to be a blogger, fashionista, vlogger, etc. This series is open to all! To find out more about the series, click here!

EMBRACE YOUR BEAUTY!
