In Carol’s makeover video, viewed over 2.8 million times, she talks about the challenges and trauma she faced in her life.

“I’m 80-years-old…I’ve really paid my dues. I had some difficult times but I think the thing that did bother me the most was I just never felt special.” – Carol

She knows this makeover is more than just new clothes and some lipgloss. It’s is a chance for her to feel special and deserving of happiness. In the video, she describes how much it meant to her that she was chosen.

Carol talks about how she was never a bride and didn’t get the chance to go to prom.

She brings up the fact that her birthday is January 2nd, which is when most people are ‘broke, hung-over or sick.’ Because of this, her birthday was rarely celebrated. Despite her struggles, Carol was successful in her professional life and she raised a son on her own.
