Published 12 months ago

Was it only a select few who read ‘The Ugly Duckling” and understood the moral of the story? It certainly seems that way, when you hear of how so many people got bullied for their looks at a young age, and then when they grew up they got the now infamous ‘glow-up’.

One viral TikTok trend, showcasing such metamorphosis is really hitting the spot with a lot of folks responding with their own version of ‘glow-ups’ and we have to admit we are happy that these folks got to experience the positive transformation they were looking for. Serenaded by George Michael’s ‘Careless Whisper’ track, these videos show the poster sharing their ‘before’ versions which it seems were allegedly rejected by society, followed by their jaw-dropping ‘after’ glow-ups.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
