There are no ugly ducklings. You are all uniquely beautiful because there is only one of you. No matter who or what is telling you that you are unworthy in some manner remember that. We are all swans inside in some way shape or form.
I wanted the Trumpeter Swan to represent the good inside of everybody. Some people live their lives being put down, made to feel insecure in some manner or abused emotionally or physically until they themselves believe they are an ugly duckling.
I believe everybody, no matter the circumstances, has a swan inside.
