Veteran poetry slammer Katie Makkai brings the house down with a whole new definition for a single notion we’re all too familiar with. Society’s definition of”pretty”. This clip has been around for about a decade, but that doesn’t make its message any less important; or unfortunately, any less relevant.
If you’ve ever been ridiculed or singled out for nothing other than being unattractive, I’m sure you’ll agree with me. That beauty may be skin deep, but the humiliation and insecurity accompanied by the lack of it; it oozes deep into your bones.
Take a moment and listen to her talk. It’ll be worth your time.
“You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing. But, you will never be, merely pretty.”
