She sits in front of her wishing mirror one night and wishes so hard that she could look more like her friend. That night the wishing fairy does his magic and Julia morphs! The next day she looks very different and is excited to show everyone her new look. But she soon learns that her new “look” has some unexpected disadvantages. Abena reminds Julia of all the things she could do so well before her change. Julia then realizes she liked her old self better. The important thing is to be happy with yourself and not compare your looks with others.
