There are two things 19-year-old trans model Ariel Moura ( @mourariel) doesn’t leave home without: authenticity and self-love. “We learn something new every day, but a lesson that I take with me wherever I go is to be myself,” she says. Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Ariel believes that cultivating high self-esteem and maintaining the right friendships were two key factors during her earlier teen years. “I have always been very sure of myself, and the self-confidence that I exuded worked as a shield. I also always had friends, who are still my friends today, who made that awful high school period very enjoyable.” With a routine of castings, photo essays and catwalks, Ariel sets aside a few minutes each day to take photos of her looks and styles. “I would define my style as high-low. I love mixing vintage pieces that I pick out at thrift stores with modern finds from fast-fashion stores.” It’s June, and in many countries that means it’s time to celebrate #Pride2017. All month long, we’ll be sharing stories from diverse LGBTQ community members from around the world, like Ariel. Discover more stories from Brazil on @instagrambrasil. Photo by @mourariel

  • I can't quite place it but the proportions don't look right. The swingarm is too long? The underseat area is too deep? The stance is out? Hmm not sure what it is but there is something not right.
