What do you think beauty is?
“Being beautiful is when your different. You don’t follow the crowd or the popular people, and try to be what they think is beautiful. It’s being yourself.”
How has our culture’s definition of beauty effected you?
“It’s hard to be in 7th grade because, the thing is, you have to be a size two, and have the newest styles, and if you don’t have those things, sometimes you get talked about.”
What do you wish women knew about real beauty?
“You don’t need to be skanky to be pretty. A lot of people think you have to wear skin-tight paint-on pants, and really low shirts, but no one really wants to see a girl dressed like that.”
