(VIDEO) Defining Pretty

Will I Be Pretty?

Katie Makkai, a veteran poetry slammer, defines ‘pretty’ in what only could be described as in an EPIC way.

Most of us can relate to having insecurities about the way we look, especially growing up and attending school where the way we look defines the level of social acceptance we have.

Katie takes us on a journey on how it is growing up trying to be society’s definition of ‘pretty’, and how it only breeds even more insecurities. Pretty darn amazing!

“This is about the self-mutilating circus we have painted ourselves clowns in. About women who will prowl 30 stores in 6 malls to find the right cocktail dress, but haven’t a clue where to find fulfillment or how wear joy, wandering through life shackled to a shopping bag, beneath those 2 pretty syllables.”
