I, just like many of you, am a young lady; an innocent young adult, growing and learning every day in an image and media obsessed society. Simply just by living day to day, I was continuously challenged to wonder what it takes to be beautiful, or question; how exactly is beauty defined. I was struggling with seeing it within my reflection, my race, my size; I was seeing my friends fall and struggle too. I was seeing young women, and even young men, as well as children far too young obsess over body image, and the thought of defining beauty consumed me. My college course subjects even started to inspire me with thoughts, and I became obsessed; wondering why self-image was so important in society, and such a fragile subject consumed me. I needed to construct an
experiment, a journey in other words, in order to wrap my head around this issue. This is my journey to finding "beautiful". This is my experience with beauty, because I found, that is exactly all that beauty truly is, BEAUTY IS AN EXPERIENCE. You will never, absolutely never, know all someone has to offer by looking. Beauty is a feeling, and I hope you enjoy my journey on proving why; who we are, all we are, and all we share to be, is all the beauty we ever truly need.
