“People say ‘Oh, you’re Ethiopian?! Oh my gosh! You’re one of the most gorgeous women!’ Then I have to have a conversation about ‘Well why do you think we’re the most gorgeous out of ‘all the other Africans’? Why do you say that? What is it in particular?’ And then they start to stutter because what they would consider to be beautiful a lot of times isn’t what other people might identify as African in terms of skin tone and hair texture and so on.”
