Committed to Beauty by IFY OKONTA

A novel about beauty standards and unrequited love. The ridicule Ella felt for her looks as a child is finally behind her. Her unconventional appearance is now appreciated as true beauty. Her search for love and acceptance takes her around the world to glitzy cities. She walks the world’s runways and lands the most sought-after fashion campaigns. But being a successful model isn’t translating into happiness for Ella. She becomes a victim of violence, and the blissful and carefree journey she expected takes a different path. She becomes self-destructive, turning to a hedonistic lifestyle. With more personal loss and heart-wrenching news from home, Ella hears God’s subtle voice telling her she has a different future ahead of her. Will her new start back home in Nigeria help her find the love and happiness that she’s always desired? Spanning three decades and four continents, Committed to Beauty is one girl’s painful search for love and acceptance…in all the wrong places.
