NOORA - WONDER WOMEN - The WAU Project
"When I was at first asked to take part in WAU-project, my immediate thought was WOW, that’s perfect for me; Because I indeed am a magical wonder woman! But the meaning of this project was more appealing than the words; This was an art project empowering and encouraging women to find the power and the belief in themselves and their self- worth. Anything that the outside world considers important - size, shape, age, culture, religion - is really not so important, as only thing matters is how YOU see yourself . If you value yourself and your heart smiles, it really shows outside to the rest of the world and every woman really should smile, because they are beautiful, different, unique and so worth it!
Being painted naked did feel at first a little awkward, but as hours past, more relaxed I started to feel and in the end I felt like I wouldn’t need clothes ever again! I had beautiful paint all over me, I felt free and almost like I was melting into the universe.
I am very proud to be part of this project and hope that many women will find positive message from these works; YOU are the most perfect thing there is on this earth! No matter how hard you have to work to get where you want to be, remember always that on the straight road you cannot get lost. Believe in yourself & trust your heart, because the only right voice is the voice of your heart.
All my life, every day I have struggled to keep my mind, dreams and life going to the direction that I want it to go, and it really hasn’t been easy in this manly world. But I feel I made it, and I still keep making it, I still want to see more wonders and magic in my life. This painting is going to be a reminder on my wall; WAU! I bloody deserve this, because I really am great. And so are you!
