Losing teeth due to chemotherapy treatments didn’t keep Natalia from looking and feeling beautiful. “Every shade is beautiful, no matter what you’ve experienced,” says Natalia in her application video. Her beauty motto is “Smile – or I will for you.” Natalia doesn’t let disabilities define her in any way. As an aspiring beauty professional, she views diversity as a reason for celebration and wants to help women know that they can look, feel and be beautiful no matter what difficulties they are facing.
