When you were a kid, probably one of the books you read was none other than The Ugly Duckling. Not only is it heartwarming and relatable, it also beautifully features the story of personal transformation for the greater good. That revolving around inner beauty is just as important as the outer beauty.
This idea eventually gave birth to a subreddit called “uglyduckling.” As the name suggests, it exists to prove that the infamous Ugly Duckling Syndrome is an intrinsic part of everyday life. There, people continue to share their before-and-after photos, showing the world the kind of transformation they have. Elite Readers has compiled some of these photos below. Scroll down and let us know which ones are your favorites!
