Student Captures What Happens When People Are Complimented And Told “You Are Beautiful”
How would you react if someone told you that you are beautiful? 18-year-old Shea Glover, a highschool student from Chicago, conducted a social experiment to find out. She posed people in front of her camera and then told them “I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful.”
The responses are touching. “I conducted an independent project which evidently turned into a social experiment regarding beauty,” Glover writes on YouTube. “I want to clarify that my intentions were not to get a reaction out of people. I was simply filming beauty and this is the result.”
This video illustrates how we’re not used to receiving compliments and when we do,we either feel embarrassed or just laugh it off! Everyone has something beautiful about them,a beauty that isn’t always visible,but that’s what makes us unique! It’s sad to see people who don’t know how or react to a compliment. For example the girl who responded in a threatening way. She must have never been told how beautiful she is. Or sadder yet, people close to her must be telling her that she’s ugly.
