We live in a great big world where we receive and send messages every day. Some of these messages are about our bodies and can alter the way we see ourselves. Join Sydney on her journey as she first struggle and then–with the help of parents and friends–comes to understand that she is happy to be herself and is truly beautiful the way she is.
