Embrace what makes you unique

"When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a

proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office 

and my father was a trashman. They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, 

in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.

This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. 

And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I 

didn’t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didn’t have to become perfect 

because I’ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.

Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable." 

-Janelle MonĂ¡e
