There’s nothing better than feeling comfortable in your own skin, it’s something that cannot be described with words. The inability to express yourself through your appearance will make it really hard for anyone to feel comfortable in their own skin, especially when they’re forced to dress or behave a certain way.

Cherryemojigirl is a 19-year-old TikTok user from Utah who started a viral trend on the platform and thousands of people quickly were inspired by it and decided to share their ‘glow ups’ with the world. Freedom is something a lot of people take for granted, but it’s the only thing that matters in life.

Soon after Cherryemojigirl’s video went viral, many people decided to follow the trend and shared their glow ups with the whole world.

Growing up in a conservative household, Cherryemojigirl was never allowed to express her true self through her appearance. So she never felt like that was the ‘real’ her.

Soon after graduation, the TikToker gained the freedom to do with herself as she pleases, so she changed her style entirely. She’s a completely new person now.
