Plastic Surgery

Pulling up my social media feed, I’m constantly bombarded with beauty videos claiming to help me ‘fit into society’ with the newest wave of trends. But according to social media’s perspective, no one fits society’s standards; everyone is simply expected to follow the same trends and promote the same body-negative propaganda in a merry-go-round of expectations. 

We are so strongly impacted by the media telling us we aren’t pretty enough, not trendy enoughit’s hard not to lose track of ourselves and just hide behind the plastic reality we created for ourselves. By challenging media’s perspective, we are able to push past the false narratives, subsequently creating an organic perspective for society as a whole.
