Building Beautiful

We asked 20 Canadian writers to share who they would nominate for the Dove Celebrate Mom Contest. Here's who Robin Farr from Farewell Stranger would nominate.

Robin Farr

Farewell Stranger

She is beautiful and I think now she knows it.

It’s not because she’s beautiful naturally, though she is.

It’s not because people tell her she is, though they do.

And it’s not because she’s magazine-cover perfect, because no one is. Not even cover girls.

It’s because she started building her beauty from the inside.

She could win $2,500 for herself and $2,500 to be donated to the charity of her choice. But more importantly, you’ll be introducing young girls to real role models who inspire them to reach their full potential! Nominate her now!

Robin Farr is a woman, a writer, a wife, a runner, a communications professional, a speaker and a mom - chronologically, at least. She got mixed up philosophically during her struggle with postpartum depression but wrote her way out of it on her blog, Farewell, Stranger. That experience, and a lifelong habit of finding inspiration in even the bad things that happen to her, led her to a new motto: “Live the life you’re meant to.” She's now working on doing just that. You can find her on Twitter @FarewellStrangr or on Facebook.
