There’s nothing more inspiring than having a role model who looks like you.

That’s why Ana Barbara Ferreira cut her hair to match one of her bullied students.

Ana, who is an educator in São Paulo, Brazil, teaches a young girl who was mocked by one of the other boys in her class.

“Yesterday, my student told me there was a boy saying that her hair was ugly. She was very sad,” Ana wrote on her Facebook page. “At that moment, the only thing I could tell her was that she was wonderful and shouldn’t care about what he was saying.”

Though that may have been enough for most teachers, Ana decided to go one step further for her distressed student.

So while she was getting ready for the next school day, Ana styled her hair exactly like the bullied little girl. When the student saw the new hairdo, she couldn’t contain her excitement.

“When she saw me, she came running to hug me and say that I was beautiful,” wrote Ana. “I told her, ‘today I’m beautiful, like you!’”
