This is the kind of thing we want to see on our news feeds.

Actual real life Disney Princess look-alike Symone Seven is a professional photographer in the States who is making it her mission to make sure young women of colour ‘feel seen’.

It all began as she transformed herself into Cinderella after watching the version of the film starring Brandy & Whitney Houston (the best one tbh)

Symone was flooded with reactions of delight so she decided to continue the series and she’s created something great.
