I think one thing that will really stick with me for the next 5 is a topic we just covered very recently. Beauty and what people perceive as beautiful. Even though we just covered this topic, it has been something studied and discussed for years. In places like the United States, our perception of beautiful and fashionable changes like the wind. One day natural color skin is beautiful, the next, it is seen as far too pale and now the expectation is to be tan year round...sometimes almost orange. This is greatly seen in the "model woman" from back in the day and the "model women" of today However our perception of what is beautiful lasts only inside the borders of our country. In other nations, what they see as the ideal person is drastically different whether that be an extra long neck or a very well fed woman. Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.
That's What Makes You Beautiful
