7. Lupita Nyong'o Loves Her Dark Skin
Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o says she was teased for her dark skin, but says she overcame bullying and embraces her beauty which lead to her campaign with makeup brand, Lancome. She said: "I realised that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you."
