Who Told You You Were Ugly?

"Who Told You You Were Ugly?" follows the story of Ashanti, a young middle school aged girl who doesn’t quite see her own beauty yet, and Nyla, her older sister. Through sisterly love, along with the revisiting of her own pains from the past, Nyla rebuilds her little sister’s confidence with a smooth, poetic nature. As a result of her sister’s loving words, Ashanti learns to truly love who she is.
