I teamed up with SK-II to share their new video, The Expiry Date, which challenges the pressure women face regarding age. The constant feeling that time is running out. And the idea that if we haven’t gotten married by a certain age, we’re spoiled milk. But I’m with SK-II. And I say f**ck that.
As a 24 year old living in New York City, outside pressures are coming in hot: “You should probably start looking for a boyfriend now, so you can be in a serious relationship by 26, engaged by 27, and married before 30.” What happens when I turn 30? Do I turn into a pumpkin? Do I shrivel up into dust and disintegrate into the air? And what if I don’t find the man of my dreams by 30? Am I expected to settle on whoever best fits the part?
Let’s not live every day like a ticking time clock. I’m with SK-II, let’s #ChangeDestiny
