Episode Description

What is beauty? Why is beauty such a concept that is so misunderstood? Could there be one absolute definition of beauty Billboards feature models with perfect, golden skin tone glows. Magazines sprawl open with images of stick thin celebrities without a blemish or flaw in sight. In a world that is so fixated on outer appearances, it’s time to redefine beauty and our teen hosts and reporters offer ways to make you feel beautiful from the inside out. Henna Hundal and Asya Gonzalez have lively conversations on the meaning of beauty and self confidence. They encourage listeners to tap into their inner beauty by smiling, standing up straight, thinking positive thoughts, and celebrating what you have instead of what you lack. Our talented singer and Back Story Reporter, Jennifer Lee, sings Carole King’s song, Beautiful which emphasizes that anyone is as beautiful as he/she feels. New reporter, Brigitte Jia, brings us her first segment of Art Attack, looking at the beauty of Japanese anime and manga. Be the Star You Are! and Express Yourself! congratulate Asya Gonzalez for being honored as one of five top teen entrepreneurs in the USA with her company Stinky Feet Gurlz. The quote by Roald Dahl sums up the theme of beauty, A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. Be Beautiful and remember you are a STAR! BE the STAR You Are!
