Tons of your favorite Disney Channel stars showed their support for Unity Day yesterday by rocking motivational tees emblazoned with empowering messages. Stuck in the Middle actress Kayla Maisonet showed off her own themed style on Instagram, and took the opportunity to also open up about how she's embracing her "biggest trademark" – her fabulous natural curls.
"In honor of National bullying prevention month, I wrote 'BE AUTHENTIC' on my shirt in hopes to inspire others to be authentic with themselves, and stay true to who they are," Kayla wrote. "Being authentic can mean so many things, but, personally It means to be who I truly am!"
"Saying that, I always get so many comments about my hair, and how I should try something new, change it, Straighten it (If you know me that last one is pretty cringe worthy) And I continue to stay authentic with myself, and keep it just the way I like it," she shared. "It represents one side of who I am being Biracial, (I am half Puerto Rican) and I always choose to embrace my biggest trademark, instead of listening to others and conform to what people say I should do!"
"Stay true to yourself, and be who are truly are. Authentic! #ProudToBeBiracial #AUTHENTICITY #IamLatina," she added.
We love that she's embracing her heritage this way, especially since her curls are fabulous!
