While we were in Tel Aviv last week, I was shocked by the diversity in the streets. We came to the conclusion that Israel had so much "raw" beauty that it could be easy to miss. We felt lucky we didn't. I got inspired to create this video and capture as many faces as I could, which is a fear of mine (to randomly stop strangers and ask if I could capture their face for a couple of seconds).
The surprising thing was that absolutely everybody said YES. Not even one person said no. Last time I tried doing that in NY I got so many "no's" that I got discourage to keep doing it, but not there, not in Israel. I realize, once again, how surprising can be facing our fears.
Thank you all for participating in this video: the ones who had no idea who I was and the ones that know me very well, thank you all.
I was also inspired by ChooseREAL to do this video. ChooseREAL is taking a stand to change our culture and the way girls/women (and everyone) see themselves and the world - as whole, complete, not lacking, worthy and more than enough, just as they are.
