Boris Kodjoe Reminds Us of the Beautiful Bond Between Fathers and Daughters
They teach us beauty is about a lot more than what we look like.
My father was one of the first people who helped me discover that I even liked to write. He bought me colored pencils and marble notebooks and helped me brainstorm stories while we laid across the living room floor. And even as when I got to high school and suddenly was into boys more than books he would still share with me bestseller novels that he recently read that he thought I would like and encourage me to express my adolescent up’s and down’s through poetry. When you’re sixteen and think acceptance rises and falls on whether you choose a middle or side part, fathers remind us that we bring so much more to the table than our hair and makeup.
