Maine Mendoza celebrates ‘the brave and the broken’ in social media challenge


“Challenge accepted.”

On Instagram, female celebrities joined the women empowerment social media challenge. 

The challenge asked women, who shared the same mindset of taking care of one another instead of criticizing each other, to post a black and white photo of themselves with the caption: “Challenge accepted.”

After posting their photos, they are encouraged to tag other women to do the same. 

Maine Mendoza’s entry was different from the others as she acknowledged that people are not always “beautiful, strong and incredible.”

“Here’s my entry to acknowledge the downs and not just the ups. Cheers to the strong; to the broken ones out there. We are all fighters and survivors in our own battles. Whatever life throws at us, let’s keep going,” Maine wrote.
