Students Cover Up School Bathroom Mirrors With Messages About Inner Beauty

Students at Trinity Academy, a Christian school in Wichita, Kansas, did something on campus this week that is getting the attention of people across the country.

The senior girls took poster paper, painted it with positive messages and Bible verses about inner beauty and taped them over the bathroom mirrors.

"People are like Oreos...the good stuff is on the inside," one message reads. "I am strong, I am worthy, I am beautiful, I am imperfect, I am me," another says.

"My sister is freshmen and I actually take her home and to school and she just talked to me about how it's important that she got to see this," one of the students told KWCH12. "And it does make a difference when you get to see that as a freshman and you're not looking for your worth from boys or things like that but she's discovering that she's beautiful not because of anything else."

Still, some have questioned the motivation behind the project, wondering if it's really just a sexist attempt to get females to cover up, in part by reminding them that their worth is not defined by outward sources aka boys. We see it a little differently, though.

We think that building a girl up and reminding her that her true beauty is on the inside doesn't necessarily have anything to do with how she dresses. After all, isn't it somewhat sexist to assume that girls dress FOR guys? We don't. We dress for ourselves and wear what makes US feel good.
