Beatricia - 2019

I met really awesome people abroad, the culture is so different. People everywhere in Paris dresses up really nicely. When I am in Australia, I am mostly in comfortable clothes even when I go outside. When I was in Paris, I dressed up everywhere I go because everyone is always in beautiful dresses. I came back and I realised that this is the kind of classy I want to be, and also that is how I want to respect myself.
