Living in Australia and Europe I have had racist comments, but never thought much about it. Visited aunts beauty salon one time while in India and was getting facial and all. Suddenly I felt my face burning and asked what she put on. It was bleach. When my mom and bua found out they got so mad.

They’ve always encouraged me to love myself as I am and I felt hurt that someone thought I was too dark and used bleach without even telling me or my parent…
