Just in time for Women’s History Month, video footage of a 4-year-old named Siahj Chase discussing her response to a boy who called her “ugly” is all the inspiration we needed today.
Cici (as her mom Sonya calls her) told the Huffington Post that the pint-sized feminist has “always been quick on her feet,” but her reaction to the mean comment was still pretty surprising for someone who hasn’t even been on this earth for five years.
The Huffington Post reports:
“What happened in school today?” her mom, Sonya, asks in the video. “A little boy said I looked … ugly,” Cici responded.
“And what did you say?” Cici’s mom asked.
“I said, ‘I didn’t come here to make a fashion statement. I came here to learn — not look pretty,'” Cici replied, adding, “The little boy said I looked ‘bad,’ and I said, ‘Did you look in a mirror lately? Bye bye, see you later, you’re making me mad.'”
Yep. That happened.
In its elegance and eloquence, the video serves as a lesson in self-love and self-esteem for women and girls around the world. And CiCi, we’re with you girl. Way to go for inspiring us all to be as amazing as you.
Watch CiCi’s video above.
