Micaela just watched your story on upworthy.com, and don't know what that guy was talking about! You're GORGEOUS and VIBRANT!!! can't wait for you to do an event in Chicago!
you are beautiful by no means ugly
I just finished watching your video about your summer in Italy and I could not disagree with you more. There is nothing unattractive about you--you literally glow. Too bad you ran into such an insensitive sculptor on your summer trip (what an ass). I taught for 30 years, and now I am a professional photographer and graphic designer. As a photographer I am hired to take photographs of attractive women all of the time. Here is something interesting you may not know, beautiful women do not see themselves as beautiful. They overlook the 50 things that border on perfection and harbor on the one or two imperfections and then obsess on those. Sometimes the only difference between a beautiful woman and one who isn't is how they see themselves. You need to stop pointing out all of your imperfections to yourself. Besides, the whole idea of beauty changes over time. My father's (he turns 90 this month) favorite actress was Claudette Colbert. He once told me she was the most beautiful women he ever saw. Now, would she be a Hollywood Starlet today? I seriously doubt it. Hey, if you lived in the mountains bordering Burma and Thailand you'd have to have about 15 brass rings on your neck to be beautiful.
I saw your video about your trip and loved the content. I have one thing to say though. Using the term "I was like" instead if "I said" or "I thought" sets you back about 15 years in verbal skills. We're trying to get our teenagers away from that expression. I have worked with professional speakers and one technique they have used is taping a little sticky note on their microphone or somewhere on stage where they can have that constant reminder with the word "like" or "ya know", or anything that just became habit and doesn't sound well or age appropriate. That aside, loved your presentation, especially important for young people. I happen to love your kind of beauty, by the way. Christie Brinkley type of beauty if boring...you have a lovely Mediterranean look which I find far more beautiful. Thanks for the video and the best of success and joy to you!
thanks for turning me on to the Moth and the story tellers.
What's in a name?
Hi there ...again..just to tell you once more that you have a fan and admirer and a possible candidate to wedlock if you decide so.
