A young Asian girl notices that her eyes look different from her peers’. Her friends have big, round eyes and long lashes. But her eyes are like her mother’s, her grandmother’s, and her little sister’s. Her family all have eyes that kiss in the corners and glow like warm tea, crinkle into crescent moons, and are filled with stories of the past and hope for the future.

​​​​​​​Drawing from the strength of these powerful women in her life, she recognizes her own beauty and discovers a path to self-love and empowerment.
