Album art for Smile (Living My Best Life) by Lil Duval

Vanessa Rochelle Lewis was bullied for her appearance and sexuality. She redefined ugly to mean Uplift Glorify Love Yourself. Vanessa is the founder of Reclaim UGLY, a movement that helps people heal from “uglification” and celebrate their beauty. In this week's My Mixtape, she shares a song that's all about those good vibes.
