Pageant Training


At first, I was hesitant to attend classes here at John Robert Powers, but now that I did, I definitely don’t regret it. It was more than I expected. It taught me a lot of new things. I really enjoyed and made new friends. It made me a better person.


De La Salle Santiago Zobel School, Grade 7
Personality Development Program Level III

I feel like this kind of training is important and I should learn more about social skills, wardrobe, etc. I’m lucky to know and learn these things from JRP and that I should share these learning with others.

Mara Andrea Pagunsan, 11

Immaculate Conception Academy, Grade 7

When my mom told me that I would be attending John Robert Powers sessions, I was a little bit curious because I didn’t know what it is. She told me that I would be enrolling there so that I will be more confident and be familiar with social graces. I also felt a little bit sad when I found out that we have to wear dresses and heels because I am a shirt-jeans-and-sneakers type of girl. On the first day, I was a little bit shy because I didn’t know anyone but when I tried talking to my classmates, I felt a little better. At first I thought the classes would be boring. Then after one class, I found out that it was fun. The teachers are friendly and I could easily ask help from them. My classmates were easy to get along with and they were fun to be with. They are just like my friends at home that is why I was able to talk to them easily. JRP helped me to have a better posture. I also learned to pronounce words better and say them according to my emotions. I learned that people would believe what you say by the way you say it. I also learned what kind of clothes I should wear for my body type. I realized that the clothes I wear can make me look smaller or bigger and taller or shorter. JRP also encouraged me to talk to strangers without being shy. I realized that eye contact is important because people would trust you more. JRP made me know more about myself and helped me become more confident.

Reedley International School, Grade 7

At first, I didn’t really think I’d like it but I saw it all. How happy my brother was with his friends so I joined. It was a great experience and I’m sad to be leaving. It improved me and made me my better / best self. Like it promised me to, I made awesome friends. I’ll never forget. It introduced me to my lifelong best friend, and helped me gain more on the way. If I become happy and maybe even famous in the future, I’ll never forget this program. It pushed me to have the strength to gain the incredible confidence I have today.

Giuliann Eimm L. Fadrigalan, 11

San Besa Alabang, Grade 5 Personality Development Level 3 student

Thanks to JRP because when I first came here, I was so confused of what to do. I was so shy. I don’t believe in myself and I always thought that I can’t be friends with other people but when I finally finished JRP, I never knew that I could have so many friends, that I can believe in myself and also achieve my dreams.

Celestial Love Decena, 12

Sacred Heart College, Grade 6 Personality Development Level 4 student

I learned so many new important stuff that I never learned before. I learned how to walk properly, sit, eat, and talk properly. I knew the basic and major things now and now, my family members are proud of me.

Lithara Ann S. Malabanan, 11

Manresa School, Grade 7 Personality Development Level III


John Robert Powers improved my life both physically and mentally in a lot of ways. From physical appearance, communication skills up to manners, I am better now. The old me is very different from who I am now after finishing the John Robert Powers program. At first, I didn’t want to join. Now, I realized that this is for the better. This could help me in school and in the future; work and for personal gain. A log of people enroll here to improve themselves – children and adult of different ages, anyone actually. So yes, John Robert Powers positively helped me in my life.


St. Peter the Apostle School, Grade 8
Personality Development Program Level III

I really like to thank JRP for giving the best classes that will really help develop who you really are. I’ve been here for about 4 years and whenever I go back, I learn a lot of new and different things both personally and socially. Now, I really am comfortable and happy about myself. Again, thank you JRP!


iAcademy, Grade 11
Personality Development Program Level IV

John Robert Powers has helped me gain my self-confidence back. I now have the courage to speak myself out. I know myself better and to think positively that I am unique. I also learned that it is never too late for a change. I decided to be happy. It helped me rethink my life. I also met a lot of people who helped me grow. Thank you to all the teachers for not giving up on me and for persuading me to change. I will live my life better for the dear self.

John Robert Powers has helped me in finding myself and becoming my best self and I’m thankful for that.


OB Montessori Center Inc., Sta. Ana, Grade 11
Personality Development Program Level III

As a kid, despite being a very shy and passive person, I always made sure I could heavily contribute to a group, even playing as a leader when needed. Despite most of the thing I help of lead on to be a success, I still feel like there was so much more I could do. John Robert Powers made me find out more about myself and what I needed to improve on. It made me want to push myself to be the best person I could be not just for the other but for myself. I have yet to apply all of my learning but I know that the next time I’m with a group of people, I could do better than what I was before.


San Beda College, Alabang, Grade 9
Personality Development Program Level III

I didn’t really have much of an expectation from JRP as I wanted something else to do in the summer. However, it exceeded my standards as I not only have learned numerous lessons, but also have fun in doing so. I became more confident in myself and instantly became comfortable with the people around me because I have to realize that we share the same interests and personalities, and that we are all in this for the long run. In this center, I not only learned about myself, but I also got to know my classmates in a deeper level. I have also learned to take more risks but also be conscious at the same time.


Don Bosco Makati, Grade 11
Personality Development Program Level III


Coming from a public-service and business-oriented family, young as I were I have to have a deep value and understanding of community service and respect for the opinion of others that in the long run, without awareness, it has corrupted and tarnished my sense of self. The "self" that I thought was is a product of fear – a worrisome feeling of being judged for doing things that I want and can do, pseudo-success-victories worked hard for just so they’ll have nothing negative to pine on and hostility-may become more of a passive and submissive individual.
JRP, however, made me realize that living in this world with should can be avoided- it is a choice that you have to want to make. Thus, in this process, I have come to find my real self; aware of my strengths and weaknesses. I have come to see my value and how I could help and inspire others to live their true authentic self, too.
From a mind full of queries and a heart palpitating so fast because of shyness and anxiety to an optimistic thinking and mindset and a gracious, open self and others-accepting heart, John Robert Powers has transformed me to who I am now and will surely be the foundation of who and what I’ll become. To date, it goes without saying that I have returned the "self" to myself. And oh yes, public service is still my cup of tea.


UP Manila College of Nursing

John Robert Powers taught me how to be the best of myself. My facilitators also taught me how to be confident, how to look good with other people, and to socialize with everyone. They taught me to become the best Shaine I can be. Thank you, JRP!


Far Eastern University Manila, 3rd Year

Many thanks to John Robert Powers for helping me to pursue my dreams in life. I learned to become a better person, to dress up properly, to be confident, to also learn how to project myself in front of the camera, learned etiquette and manners and how to carry myself. I also learned to be more mature. I discovered new things and realized that “being yourself” is the key to success.

John Robert Powers has successfully molded me to become the best I can be. It is capable of unlocking the different kinds of potential each and every individual has. With this, I can say that JRP helped me discover my hidden talents and potentials.

Kyle Sy, 18

Xavier School

JRP helped me to be confident and to express myself better. They helped me discover my potential and how to protect myself gracefully. They helped me to trust my abilities and myself in everything I do and do things passionately to the best of my abilities. They also taught me that people make their impressions regarding you by the way you talk, the way you stand, and the way you project yourself. That is why, it is important for one to cover all these bases to become the best version of oneself.

Justine Anne Gurtiza, 21

University of Sto. Tomas, 4th Year College

Before I discovered JRP, my life was really dull and I get too pressured because of friends. I don’t really open up even to my family, friends, and to my community. I prefer staying at home and watching them socialize because I am afraid of being judged by other. When I’m being judged, I get mad or get negative vibes. Because of JRP, I became the person I want to be and I’m not afraid of being judged. I learned to love myself in JRP.

Patricia Bernadette C. Arganda, 21

4th Year College – FEU Makati


When I entered John Robert Powers, I didn’t expect that it will change me, but now, I’m very vocal that it helped me a lot especially on personality development. It improved my personality. Now I know myself completely and what I am capable of doing. It improved my image like how to dress in different occasions and what fits my body. Voice communication did a great work on how to communicate well to other people. JRP and its people are very friendly and accommodating.


Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Calamba
Personality Development Program Level III
1 Stage English Learning Program

Before joining JRP, it was a struggle for me to express myself. I was hesitant and unsure of what I want to set for myself. Even telling my parents that I took an assessment in JRP was hard for me. Yes, I went to JRP without them knowing. It was a relief when I told them and they encouraged me to enroll. After a year of personality development program, I developed my confidence, and changed my perspective. JRP made me realize what I am capable of and what more I can do. They helped me improved physically, emotionally, and mentally. JRP led me to a path of positivity and openness towards myself and others.

Engelyn La Madrid Roxas, 29

Heatwave Industrial Sales – Product Design Engineer

JRP emphasizes the importance of being confident and sensitive – that is JRP’s philosophy of happiness. These two go hand in hand if a person wants to find happiness in life. Happiness is always in between caring for one’s self and for others – be yourself not only for your own but also for others. I must say from my experiences of failures and successes, it is like walking on a tight rope – balancing between believing that you can shape your own life and believing that you can shape your own life and believing that others can shape it, too. Yet if one comes to believe that he can do everything better than everyone, he feels nothing but inferiority that drains the life out of him / her. Our lives always need a delicate balance of confidence and sensitivity to keep us from falling into inferiority, jealousy, and unhappiness. JRP, through its personality development program, helped find my own balance. The image makeover sessions really helped me feel good about myself and made me realize that I can be the person that I wanted to be. The social etiquette and voice communication classes highlighted the value of respecting and appreciating one another’s culture, religion, and lifestyles, and that made me realize that my story is just one of the many but nonetheless fascinating and significant enough to be shared. My JRP experience overall has been educational and reflective, and I am looking forward sharing what I have learned in my own way.

Setting my foot at JRP is just a dream before, but now that a dream of mine became a reality. I am now a proud alumna of John Robert Powers. Looking back several years ago, I just stared at the billboards of JRP telling myself that one day after I graduate from college and I already am earning my own money, I will enroll myself at this prestigious center. The things that I have learned from JRP are the very helpful lessons / learning I will cherish for a lifetime.

Noreen L. Tibay, 30

Former HR Officer at Toshiba, Personality Development Program Level 1

I have learned the best and important part of my life from JRP which is confidence. My journey in JRP has always been helpful, the sessions were very attractive, practical, goal-oriented and emotional, too. I personally started benefitting and saw the improvement in myself from all of the sessions/ class I have attended.

Jefferson B. Desamito, 36

Solutions Enablement Supervisor

I wish I learned these things back when I was still in elementary. If I did, I would be unstoppable (just kidding). I hope that our education system in the Philippines considers adapting the courses I learned here so that many Filipinos will raise the bar on how they interact with other people.

Lorraine Liao, 28

Looking back, I spent my summer in John Robert Powers taking personality development classes and so much more. Brimming with pride and excitement, there I was with my colleagues gliding our feet while enjoying our runway polishing techniques - one of my favorite classes that made me confident to try the world of pageantry. Now, I’m reaping the advantage of investing my time wisely, from being a shy teen I now feel more adequate. The training I went through is now innate in me. Thanks to JRP for molding me to become a responsible adult, capable of maximizing my potentials to the fullest. Lastly, JRP has helped and shaped me into who I am today. The exposure and experience they gave like the “summer showcase” made me realize that they could really make things happen for you. I am now more comfortable dealing with people. The experience is one of the highlights of my teenage years.

Roanne Refrea, 26

John Robert Powers was my first step to reaching my goal. It helped me discover myself more and appreciate who I am as a person. It has also helped me enhance my skills and talents which are now very important in the industry that I am in. Learning from experienced instructors was a very good experience. They encouraged and guided me to be the best that I can be. John Robert Powers made it happen for me!

Jennifer Tarol Barrientos

Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 2008

I learned how to present myself very well in front of the crowd in JRP. I also apply the believability lesson when I’m in the competition and believe that I’m beautiful, talented, and intelligent person. Although I don’t have any title yet, I’m still contented because I know I showed my best self. I will always be positive and patient until I reach my dreams. Lastly, if I lose one dream I still have another one.

Christine Mae Maligalig

Being part of the John Robert Powers family means a lot to me especially for teaching me improve my pageant career as well as applying it in my daily life style. I go to work with everything I have learned from JRP to be the best that I can be; not only pageants but also as a person in whatever field of work that I’ll be in the future. I like to have my own business. I know whenever I need further teaching, I’ll always turn to JRP as it’s the best out there. I would like to thank everyone especially the whole JRP team, my family and friends who have been pushing me hard to improve myself. I didn’t get my first target but I won’t stop, I will join more pageants and I’ll always be thankful to John Robert Powers for the success.

Ina Guerrero

Binibining Pilipinas candidate 2015

Lack of self-confidence, yes, you heard it right! It was the reason why I hated joining pageants at first. While everyone believed I can do it, I didn't. Until John Robert Powers made it possible and made it happen from speaking, walking, and interacting with other people. JRP helped me develop my overall personality.It all started with JRP! Thank you to my mentors and to John Robert Powers.

Leren Mae M. Bautista

Ms. Tourism Queen of the Year International 2015


At JRP, they taught me the necessary skills to overcome my fears and cultivate the art of self-expression. With their help, I learned to believe in my own abilities and not be hindered by my self-imposed limitations. From a shy, awkward boy stripped of all ambition and aspiration, I’ve grown into young man beaming with confidence and skills consistent with my career. Today I am a young actor, singer, dancer and commercial model and I have a lot to thank JRP for. So much has changed and the new Benigno De Guzman, Jr. is happy to have been a part of the John Robert Powers family. “Believe in yourself. Be who you are. Don’t be scared in challenges. You may not know but this challenge can one day bring you success.“

Ben De Guzman

Star Magic Artist

John Robert Powers helped me discover my passion in life. It made me realize that we should develop our God-given talent and share it with people around us. JRP honed my skills in acting and my entire personality. Everything was just a dream before and JRP made it all happen! Dream come true! Everything is possible. Just dream big, pursue it, and share it with passion.

Manel Sevidal


The English Learning Program of JRP helped me a lot in terms of socializing with other people. I learned how to use the tenses of verb correctly. I would recommend JRP to others because it is a good school for anyone who is having a hard time with English.

Karen Mae Reyes

ABS-CBN Artist

My overall experience in JRP has been a wonderful roller coaster ride! I just love how the class size is absolutely perfect! Being with different kinds of people and leaving the class with them as your friend is always fun. But of course, it could be scary at times, especially when they give you the wrong impression. That’s how JRP trains you. From how you dress to how you speak and how you stand up, it may all sound vain but what can you do? After all, everything starts from the first impression! Then personality comes next. That’s why it’s called personality development! They teach you how to openly express how you feel the proper way, which is to be sensitive to other people’s feelings. Then if you think you’re ready for something extraordinary, I suggest you upgrade to the celebrity program! It’s my personal favorite! I never thought I would try acting nor hosting. But here I am, hosting events and soon, you’ll be seeing me in an independent film. So if you think you can’t act, host or model well, this program will help you see the light! This program will definitely bring out the superstar in you! JRP indeed makes your dreams come true!

Nikita Conwi

I remember when I started out as an awkward teenager at John Robert Powers 10 years ago. I was in high school and I believe I was still at that stage of discovering who I really was. One thing I knew—I loved performing and dreamed of seeing myself on TV one day. I didn’t really know what John Robert Powers was about until I saw an ad on the newspaper. I called up and I was immediately scheduled for an appointment by one of the consultants. To make the long story short, I started attending the personality development classes a week after speaking with my consultant. I found the lessons very helpful since I was at a “transition” stage. In the visual poise class, not only was I taught to walk with confidence but also command attention upon entering a room without having to say anything. I might have been too young to apply make-up but John Robert Powers made sure that students like me learned the importance of caring for one’s skin and hair. One of the classes that really made an impact in my life and present career was the voice communication class. I still remember the day my instructor told me that she knew she would see me on television one day, delivering the news or hosting a show. 10 years after, here I am enjoying my job as a broadcaster while imparting my knowledge and experience as one of the JRP instructors. John Robert Powers develops the skills and talents of every student, making sure that everyone reaches his/her fullest potential.

Ingrid Nieto

Because of JRP, I have faced and have overcome my doubts and came out to be a more confident version of me. I have learned more about myself and my worth as a person. Miss Marisyll once said, “You are a person of substance; you are more than just a face and a body.” Confidence comes from within. It’s surely something that I will not take for granted but will yearn to develop.

Germaine Ferrer

Face of John Robert Powers 2015 Female Winner Personality Development Program Level 1

My favorite part of the Personality Development Program is the discussion about how to know my skin type, how to take care of my skin specially the face and how to do day and night make up. Next, I learned more about myself like what are my strengths and weaknesses. Lastly, the portion where I came to know what I need to improve and what I need to do to have a good impression.

Jade Bernardo

Face of John Robert Powers 2014

A lot has changed since I won the title of being the Face of John Robert Powers. One of these is change in my surroundings as a student. They admire and respect me. Most of them say, “Wow! Sikat ka na, friend! Model ka na!“. Some people recognize me even though I do not know them personally and it flatters me. I was also invited in general assemblies and other major events as their special guest. There was an instance where a candidate competing for the Engineering Ambassador and Ambassadress who asked me to teach him how to walk on a runway gracefully and how to project in front of the camera.

AJ Durana

Face of John Robert Powers 2014


Before joining JRP, I thought that I have all of my life together but I came to realize that I did not have everything. Two years ago, my parents recommended that I join this school and I said I do not like to join because I thought it was not right for me. When I entered college, I had very low self-esteem. As soon as summer started, I begged my parents to enroll me to JRP so I can improve my self-esteem and refine my English skills. I just wanted to say thank you to JRP for helping refine my English as well as giving me the opportunity to achieve more.


Valencia College / Accounting Student

The lessons in JRP are really helpful because the lessons can really change one’s personality. I really loved how the instructors discussed all of the lessons and I also learned a lot. I just hope that I could go back to JRP again to learn more lessons that I haven’t learned.


Centro De Cultura, Grade VII
Upper Beginner Teens, 1 Stage

I have two main reasons why I inquired at JRP two years ago: (1 Improve my conversational skills and (2) develop self-confidence in public speaking / presentation using the English language. I still have a long way to really be as fluent but I am more confident now than before, believing that I can do better everyday. Friends are still surprised with the amount I paid for a four-month course, but it doesn’t matter to me, especially now that I have completed the course. JRP Directress, Ms. Mildred, listened to my personal assessment and what really need based on that (and her own assessment), a program was customized for me. I learned a lot from grammar to even non-verbal communication. I enjoye the sessions especially when a topic is given and I have to share my thoughts on the basis of correct grammar, thought organization and speaking. Thank you for this customized lesson for me. Thank you to my facilitators. I guess, this is one of the best things ever done for me as a student. More power to JRP!

I am a nurse by profession. And nursing jobs are more in demand abroad. Getting a work abroad is not easy. You need to take a lot of exams and one of these is IELTS. That’s why I enrolled at JRP-ELP. Before I enrolled here at JRP, I am afraid to speak English- thinking that I might not speak right. JRP taught us to be more confident. They taught us what we really needed to improve on. I learned how to use proper tenses in constructing grammar and event correct pronunciation, and I also learned the importance of widening my vocabulary. Now that I finished level 1, I would say that I feel positive changes in my communication skills. Thank you, JRP!

English is not our first language but this language helped me with my job and allowed me to use these skills to talk to foreign clients. I thought that my learning is quite enough. I was hesitant with my grammar that sometimes, I was even misunderstood. As I entered John Robert Powers, the expectation of building my self-confidence using the proper grammar and delivering the speech have changed me. The facilitators were very helpful and patient with us and allowed us to open-up ourselves on what we don’t understand. The sessions are not enough for me because I crave for more learning. Unfortunately, I’ll be leaving the country but given the chance, I would love to still continue and enroll to the next English level.


English Learning Program, 1 Level Telephone Banker at JRP Morgan & Chase Co.


My experience in John Robert Powers’ Pageant Training is transformative! It is really one step forward to being a queen! Maybe not a beauty queen but a queen of one’s own right. From being a plain Jane who is often hit by petty insecurities, I was able to realize better my self-worth and became very happy with who I have become. I learned that the validation that I am a beautiful person has to come first from me. In a nutshell, the most significant lessons I learned from the pageant training is to be poised and to be effective when I speak. JRP taught me that a queen always has to maintain poise at all times, whether standing waiting in line for the train or from dining in a formal setting. Her poise can go a long way and this should enable her to be spotted even from a distance. Seems like a lot of work but it is really a mindset to be developed. I used to dread public speaking as I was conscious of the people looking at me, but I learned that once on stage, I have to focus on the goal, which is to basically convey a message. Ever since, I always try to keep my composure during public speaking and direct my energy in delivering the message, which always has to makes sense and delivered in a clear manner. These two things were my main takeaway from JRP’s pageant training and I know these will make me the queen I am meant to be!

The reason why I joined this beauty pageant training is because I want to develop into my full potential and to enhance my talents and skills in engaging to bigger pageants in the future. As I experienced the two-day training, I met people from different walks of life that helped me to socialize better with other people. I realized that for you to beautify your physical appearance, you have to consider your inner beauty as well. Since I am planning to join bigger pageants, I am now more confident that I can compete and handle myself. I am very thankful and blessed to be a part of this pageant training.

Danna Ashley J. Mayo, 17

De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde, 2nd year Student

I was indeed blessed to be one of the few students to be chosen for the sponsored beauty pageant training. This training helped me to be more confident and to feel good about myself. It changed how I behave and socialize with others. It helped improve the way I walk, talk and dress-up. It also made me realize that inner beauty is the most important thing. Since I’m a pageant enthusiast, I was able to use all I’ve learned in JRP and applied it to all the pageants I recently joined. This training really established a good foundation for me and will continue to apply everything I’ve learned as I join bigger pageants in the future.

Danielle Anthea J. Mayo, 22

The free pageant training last August 2016 was a surprise blessing for me. I never thought of being in the top 12 participants of John Robert Powers. At first, I was nervous of what will happen next and upon auditioning in the said event, the whole staff of John Robert Powers were accommodating and friendly. It was an excellent learning experience to be part of them. I feel at home with the teachers and staffs. They treated us like family. During the training, I have learned all the manners and etiquettes of a beauty queen. It was delivered very well. Kudos to JRP! Thank you for choosing me as one of the participants of your free pageant training. It was a fulfillment of a dream to be part of an institution who will mold you to your greatest!

Beatrix Nathania See Javier, 20

De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, 3rd Year

It has been almost 6 months since I was selected to be part of Sponsored Beauty Pageant Training last August 2016. I didn’t expect that I will be chosen because I have no experience joining beauty pageants. What I know is that I have a dream to become one of the successful Filipina beauty queens. I am happy and delighted. I am able to learn and to gain knowledge on what the industry is doing. It is difficult to compete in beauty pageants because you have to be mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually ready. John Robert Powers taught me to believe in myself and to fill my self with confidence. Every woman has her own advantage but if you wear confidence and believe you can, definitely you will win the competition. My two-day journey for the Beauty Pageant Training was filled with so much confidence and fresh start of my journey to become the better version of myself. I treasure that day because it is the beginning of the new me. I started to think of ways and apply the lessons I learned during the training. I always tell myself that it takes time for me to become a beauty queen. I need to train myself and be ready for the battle of becoming the next Filipina beauty queen who will represent the country in international competitions. Thank you John Robert Powers! If you have not chosen me to be part of that Beauty Pageant Training, I would still be thinking of how I will be able to start my journey to be a beauty queen. Everything starts from a dream and I am amazed that that dream will come to reality. John Robert Powers will always be a part of that journey.

Being a participant in the sponsored Beauty Pageant Training was a huge milestone for me. It was an affirmation of my dream of becoming a beauty queen. The education I received from John Robert Powers gave me a strong foundation towards reaching my best self. It taught me how to have a winner’s mindset, that in everything that I do, I should strive for excellence. I had the privilege of being mentored by the country’s finest trainers who are experts in their field. They recognized my potential and they cheered me on as I take steps toward turning my dream into a reality. The past 6 months have been eventful for me in all aspects of my life. As the saying goes, “Success favors the prepared mind.” I have sought opportunities to continuously enhance myself so that I will be 110% ready by the time I compete at a beauty pageant. My daily routine is geared towards becoming 1% better than I was yesterday. I started leading a healthier lifestyle, incorporating workouts/exercises on a daily basis, having a proper diet and getting the right amount of sleep. I researched on learning the essentials of becoming a beauty queen – the right make-up, the proper walk and how to dress like one. I lived each day acting as if I were a queen already, being at my best at all times physically and mentally. I surrounded myself with people who encourage me to chase after my dream. I developed a positive self-image and it reflected with the way I live my life – finding beauty and purpose in everything that I do. I am thankful to John Robert Powers for providing such an opportunity. As a kid, I could only dream of being a product of JRP. If it were not for their Sponsored Beauty Pageant Training, I would not have the confidence to push myself out of my comfort zone and overcome my fears. Thanks to JRP, I am confidently beautiful with a heart.
