I developed the Skin I'm In project to be reflective of the beauty in our differences and to challenge the prejudices that exist in our minds. In this work, you will not only see the models who deal with societal ignorance based on their outward appearance, but you will hear their stories and share some of their life experiences. Perceive what they have to say about the prejudices they are faced with just doing normal day-to-day activities and marvel at how dealing with those prejudices has made each of them strong advocates for self- love and acceptance. This is an opportunity to educate ourselves and coming generations on the importance of embracing and celebrating differences and to eliminate bullying and other forms of intolerance. One of the most important things you can do within the realm of your minds is to accept yourself as well as others, and learn to love and embrace the skin you're in.

Asia Asia had always wanted to travel. She figured she could kill two birds with one stone by becoming a flight attendant. Even when she became pregnant, she didn't let that alter her plans. She had been looking forward to becoming a mother. Right up to the moment the doctor said, "congratulations...it's a girl." Asia couldn't have been more disappointed. She adored her cousin Lonnie's little boy and couldn't wait to have one of her own. But God had chosen to curse her with a daughter instead. As far as Asia was concerned, that was the beginning of the end. Imani Imani didn't know who was more excited, her or her children. They could hardly wait to get to Aunt Lonnie's house for the party. It had been so long since the whole family had gotten together. Imani couldn't wait to see everyone. Well, everyone except her mother. She and her mother Asia had never gotten along. The woman never had anything nice to say to her. After twenty-nine years Imani had learned to accept things for what they were. But now Asia was doing the same thing to Imani's daughter Bidjan.

She smiled to herself, thinking that today was going to be a good day. She intended to hold on to that thought and ignore the nagging feeling in the back of her mind that something bad was about to happen. Lonnie loved her family. But like all families, they had their share of issues. And Lonnie knew the shit was going to hit the fan soon. She just prayed it would not be today.

Being in the field of medicine and plastic surgery, I have realised just having knowledge and skills are not enough to be a successful plastic surgeon; you need to be a general surgeon, a doctor, and most importantly, a compassionate human being to be successful. You also need to be a good administrator, leader, businessman, and politician. You need to be a good teacher to continue the legacy. This is what I am striving to accomplish. My wish is that I will be able to follow my profession with dignity, sincerity, ethically and legally, and to teach the youngsters to do the same. This book is about a great discipline that is called plastic surgery. It is an intensely personal subject that causes a great deal of debate, often very emotional. More than any other branch of medicine, it is also surrounded by a dense, almost impenetrable fog of rumor, myths, and misconceptions. This book will educate you to understand what goes behind the scene. Not only that, but everything you need to know about the plastic and cosmetic surgery from choosing the right surgeon to avoiding disasters and getting the treatment you really need is here in the book.

The Skin I'm In explores the importance of having skin covering while encouraging children to notice the similarities as well as the differences in skin tone and texture as a person ages, gains or losses weight, gets hot or cold, etc. It then asks the reader to draw a picture of himself/herself and explain how they view the importance of their skin. This book does not serve as a science book therefore it doesn't offer an in-depth view of the purposes. It only serves to stimulate the reader's interest in a subject generally taken for granted.
