It wasn’t always easy for her.
Carol Odero has attracted a lot of hate in the past, especially as a panellist on Citizen TV’s Fashion Watch. Remorseless people have always labelled her as ‘ugly’ or as a poor dresser
Despite the hate, Carol has remained strong. She is still one of the most sort after people in Kenya’s fashion scene. This shows that you should never allow other people’s opinion of you to dim your zeal.
In her revelation on Couture Magazine, she said:
My flawless skin broke out at 29… I sunk money into skincare and lifestyle. I got trolled for having acne. Threads confident in my ugly. That was actually the word used. Ugly. Other women were effortlessly beautiful so why was I working so hard to earn mine dammit! It would seem I was destined to be on the wrong side of beauty my entire life.
Eventually, she learned to ignore people and just embraced herself just as she was.
After years of being told I was too black, that my hair was too something, my arms too toned, my body a little too strong and agile looking, my muchness simply too much, a switch flipped in my head. I hate this cliché but it is ever so perfect. I found my beauty as dramatic as it was. I embraced me..
That’s the spirit. Never let anyone put you down for how you look.
