This Young Poet Will Forever Shake Your View Of Beauty Standards

Samantha Brown is a young poet with a heavy message. She takes the preconceived notions of societal beauty standards and totally breaks them down with her remarkable slam poem - What Guys Look For In Girls. "You don't need any miracle cream to keep your passions smooth, hair free or diet pills to slim your kindness down." her words explain. "Because you're worth so much more than your waistline, you're worth the beautiful thoughts you think and the daring dreams you dream."  "This is mostly about how expectations for everyone freaking suck." says Samantha. "Because you are super awesome, and letting clueless fifteen-year-old boys (or anyone for that matter) tell you that you're not good enough is a terrible, destructive idea. You deserve so much better than that for yourself." Take a moment to watch her incredible art in action and reflect on your own perception of yourself. I think we can all relate to this, and we all need a reminder sometimes to feel at peace with our bodies and our sense of self-esteem.  [embed][/embed] Share this with anyone who could use a little body positivity, and let us know your thoughts on Samantha's poignant video!
