DEAR ABBY: My name is "Lucia," I am 15 and I live in Santa Catarina, Brazil. My high school classmates and I saw a letter from "Needs a Direction, Atlanta" online. That's why I'm asking for some advice from you.
Here in my country, there is a lot of awareness about female power and body positivity, however, we also have a standard of beauty that many girls can't or don't want to follow. On social media we see a lot of perfect girls with thousands of followers on Instagram. I don't let myself be shaken by my appearance or my defects, but sometimes I feel "excluded" because I'm not like the "amazing girl on social media."
