We often want to treasure the vitality and enthusiasm of our earlier years, and we always tend to look back on them with nostalgia, but what we do not realize is the beauty that also lies within the fact that we’re all getting older each day.
Candace Leslie Cima is a 76-year-old influencer whose mission is to make the world see the beauty in aging.
As a mother, grandmother, model, businesswoman, and creative artist, Candace uses her platforms to tell people how empowering it is to be a woman in her 70s.
Shutting Down The Stereotypes
By posting content on her Instagram, Candace shatters negative stereotypes online about getting old and people love her for it.
While wearing her classy and elegant outfits, Candace also wears her wrinkles proudly as a testament to a life well-lived.
Her main goal is to open up people’s eyes to the reality that all of us will get old and it’s up to us how we’re going to deal with it. She said, “I have always had a fascination with aging even when I was in my 20s and 30s never understanding how something so natural could have a negative connotation.”
Not Just A Woman
Candace’s vision is to empower women and let them know that no matter what their age is, they can be “more”. She said, “We are not our mothers or our grandmothers. We now have the chance to be productive, intelligent, compassionate, stylish women throughout our later years”.
The World Loves Her
