This video is a follow up to the article about Valentina Sampaio. I love the message.
Stunning, smoldering, sensational — all words used to capture the essence of the woman gracing the cover of the November issue of Elle magazine in Brazil. Her name is Valentina Sampaio, a Brazilian native, and this is her first cover. She’s 19, and she is transgender.
She came out this past March in a video for International Women’s Day, produced by L’Oreal Paris, as NewNowNext reported.
Speaking in her native tongue, Sampaio says in the video, “Beauty is something that transcends the body—it comes from the soul.”
“It’s great when you accept yourself, when you know what you’re worth.”
