To say that Daria Vladimirovna Kondakova is talented is an understatement. The Russian rhythmic gymnast got too many medals around her neck including a gold medal for rope in the 2010 World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships, three silver medals for all-around in the World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in 2009, 2010, and 2011, and one silver medal for all-around in the Rhythmic Gymnastics European Championships in 2010.

In the sport rhythmic gymnastics, the gymnast or group of gymnasts manipulates one or two pieces of apparatus including balls, clubs, hoops, rope or ribbon. The sport combines techniques used in gymnastics, ballet and dance.

Kondakova’s stunning performance during the World Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in Montpellier in 2011 showed her flexibility, precision, and control in handling a ball. Years of hard work and training enabled Kondakova to execute such flawless routine.

After sustaining a serious knee injury in 2012, the young athlete decided to retire and began working as a coach and choreographer for routines and music.

We all make choices and mistakes we are not so proud of that we end up living in regrets. Human as we are, those 'what ifs' and 'could have beens' have become broken pieces of what we are as a whole--imperfect.

Through her awe-inspiring photo series, Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi, a Romanian photographer taught us that it's okay to have regrets and that we are not alone. Dragoi asked strangers about their biggest regret and their answers are raw and unfiltered for some while woeful and peculiar for others.

'This question has given me the chance to have a profound connection between me and the interlocutor, thus managing to get into their soul and bring out a grinding they have [had] for years,' Dragoi told MyModernMet.

She Took Selfies Everyday For Six Years. The Result? I Am So Worried!

A pretty girl’s battle with a serious condition is chronicled through everyday selfies.

Everyday since she was 14, 21-year old Rebecca Brown had been taking photos of herself to document her battle against a disorder known as trichotillomania. Trichotillomania is an obsessive-compulsive (OC) related disorder that compels an individual to pull out his/her own hair. The person may pull out hair from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, underarms, pubic region, or any other hairy body part, which subsequently cause evident bald patches. This disorder seems to resemble OCD, an addiction, or a habit; however, it has been recently regarded as a body-focused repetitive behaviour (BFRBs), like nail-bitting or skin picking. Some people with trichotillomania experience very strong impulses to pluck out hairs that their daily activities are disrupted.

Rebecca made a video to collate the pictures she took daily for more than six years. The short video began from when she was only 14 years old,  back when she had very beautiful and healthy head of hair.  Her transformation and her struggles manifested as the years pass, and her beautiful smile also faded as she continued the battle. She indicated emotional events in the video that may have also contributed to the worsening of her disorder. In 2011, she became depressive and suicidal; the disorder had a huge negative impact on her life.

Despite her struggles, Rebecca was able to win the fight. She had been bald-free for one year come 2013 and had also been accepted to a film school. Now, at 21 years of age, Rebecca is looking like the fresh-faced blonde like she was before. She also has a more positive perspective in life.

Watch her video below:
