Several times during the film, Precious looks in a mirror and sees who she aspires to be (in a literal manner; someone else is shown in the mirror every time, usually a Caucasian girl with long, blond hair). In a narration near the end, while we see Precious looking in a mirror again, Precious says that Ms. Rain told her that she is beautiful as she is. Precious then says "As crazy as it sounds...I think she's right." We then see what she sees in the mirror...herself.
