  • Are we ready?

  • When do girls first learn that being pretty matters?

  • I think girls probably experience it fresh out the womb.

  • Can't escape it.

  • Like, you're born into it.

  • I think you always know, even when you're little that pretty and not pretty are two things.

  • The way that we talk to young girls as adults always involves looks.

  • Girls spend most of our adulthood trying to get over the fact that when we were young, all that we were told to be was pretty.

  • Where does the pressure to be pretty come from?

  • Oh God, I think it's, I think the pressure of pretty is coming from so many different places.

  • It's media.

  • Media affects men.

  • Media affects women.

  • I think it's a cycle.

  • A lot of my experiences about being pretty have to do with boys and whether or not they thought I looked nice.

  • It can really like mess you up at first.

  • You be like, "Well, what?

  • Why am I not good enough?

  • "Why am I not pretty enough?Why am I not cute enough?"

  • I needed validation from a guy or a good looking guy to feel that way.

  • Is there a difference between pretty and beautiful?

  • Yes, I definitely think there is.

  • It would be nice if they were all wrapped up in the same thing, but I think beauty is all over you.

  • Something that comes from the inside out .

  • It's a combination of who I am and what I bring to the table.

  • Beautiful is something that can't be taken away from you.

  • What makes you feel beautiful

  • I feel the most beautiful when I'm using my mind and when I'm with my friends.

  • Being around people who appreciate me for every ounce of what I am makes me feel beautiful.

  • I feel beautiful when I'm happy.

  • Being able to say that like, at the end of the day, I still don't care what anyone thinks.

  • I am who I am and I love that about me.

  • What advice do you have for girls who don't feel pretty?

  • I feel you, girls.

  • It's not easy.

  • Everyone, even the people you think are super pretty, has felt that way before and you will feel more pretty and more beautiful if you focus on the things that make you feel happy and beautiful.

  • Try and find your own inner beauty .

  • Find things that make you feel good about yourself.

  • Surround yourself with people who think you're beautiful, who think everything about you is actually beautiful, like the real you.

  • Be a person that you want to be and I think that will make you happy and pretty won't matter anymore
