Global Visions of Beauty

The WVC Global Student Club presented Global Visions of Beauty. Students discussed beauty in a global context from the Māori people of New Zealand to the Padaung women of the Kayan people to the western vision of  the U.S. Students’ goal was to enhance cultural acceptance by enhancing knowledge and to further demonstrate that although we don’t all share the same vision, we share similar struggles and consequences. One of the messages of the presentation was to consider the source of our vision of beauty. Does our vision of beauty originate from internal thought or from external messages?  Ultimately, students concluded that the beauty of a person is not measured by her/his ability to conform to a society’s standard, but by her/his ability to accept the beauty in others. Seventy-three students and six faculty members attended the presentation!
