I had no idea of its existence a few hours ago, but Fearless magazine has a cute cover with Angela Simmons. Simmons serves as guest editor of the publication’s latest issue, and in her editor’s letter, stresses the importance of self-awareness.  It’s written in sort of “I Believe I Can Fly” fashion, but hey, that’s what you kids love these days.

Here’s part of the letter courtesy of Necole Bitchie:

I’ve overcome a lot of obstacles! For me, when I first came onto the scene I dealt with criticism about my weight and how I looked, but I’ve overcome that. I’ve learned that everyone has an opinion when you’re in the spotlight, but what matters most is how YOU feel about yourself. I’ve gotten over being criticized, and learned [it’s] just not important. There are other things to focus your energy on.

It’s important to keep your biggest cheerleaders closest to you and I will say my friends and family are always apart of my life because they help in shaping me as an individual. Without them, I don’t know where I would be. Through both the good and the hard times they are always there to lean on with the best advice. With [their] help I can say it has been an amazing journey.
