Ellen DeGeneres won Teen Choice Award, and her speech was inspiring. She took the opportunity to talk about why it is good to embrace who you are even if you don't fit in, because "fitting in isn't all that matters, it's being unique and being who you are".
She made reference about her personal experience with being unique and how some time ago she couldn’t embrace herself.
Even when no one knows about them, we’re all fighting our own inner battles. What makes Ellen so amazing, is that having faught her battles, she’s turned into a source of inspiration for many through her genuine and accepting personality as well as her work.
As such, we invite you to get to know Ellen better by understanding her journey towards accepting herself while she worked the ladder of success in a collection of MAKERS' videos here.
