This photo of Wilson was Photoshopped by designers in more than 18 countries.

Back in June, freelance journalist Esther Honig had her face Photoshopped by artists in 19 different countries, and the results went viral.

Honig had used an online freelancing platform called Fiverr to send her photo to graphic designers all over the world with the simple request to make her look more "beautiful."
Her close college friend Priscilla Yuki Wilson, an actor and radio journalist, just released her own set of manipulated images, and they are just as fascinating.
Wilson, who is biracial, with a Japanese mother and black father, asked the designers from countries around the world to use Photoshop to "make [her] beautiful." The portraits were drastically different from Honig's. "In contrast to Honig's results, where her face became a canvas to express more than a dozen contrasting beauty standards, I found that my face actually challenged the application of Photoshop in this instance," Wilson explained on her personal website. "As a biracial women there is no standard of beauty or mold that can easily fit my face."
