A letter to myself is a short film depicting a letter of inspiration to young girl in the midst of her struggling with her skin disorder . It touches upon beauty seen in the eyes of a child as well as the concept of learning a skill, such as learning to play piano, as the same type of work ethic young girls should practice in learning how to accept the differences in others. As Amanda’s skills grows, so does her knowledge and acceptance of herself and the rejection of idealistic confinements.
