Guest Post From Chelsie Prince
After a Google search on “Most Beautiful Women,” and the first result being Maxim’s Hot 100 list, I had an idea: I wanted to create an entirely new list that focuses on beautiful women from around the world. But instead of defining beauty as physical appearance, it would be defined as compassionate, brave and action oriented. If girls could see a list made up of great women who are truly beautiful, not only in appearance but in action, maybe they would appreciate their abilities and believe in greater possibilities for their futures.
In my opinion, our society has put too much emphasis on looks. It is ruining the innocence of our girls and adding much difficulty to many women’s lives around the world. Let’s create something that helps to change that. Let’s create a list that shows women of different sizes, ethnicities, social classes and professions. Let the stories of these amazing women inspire and empower all those that come across it.
And that is how the NEW List was born.
We have already started collecting nominations and are encouraging people in every country to nominate the beautiful women they know and admire. We are looking for women who are doing amazing things with their lives and who have the ability to impact the lives of others. You can send your nominations to info@NEWListProject.com. Include the nominee’s full name, the country they live in, their contact information and the reason why they are beautiful.
Let’s start defining beauty by action rather than by pretty faces and perfect bodies.
