Why Thinking You’re Ugly is Bad for You
About 10,000 people a month Google the phrase, “Am I ugly?”  Meaghan Ramsey of the Dove Self-Esteem Project has a feeling that many of them are young girls.  In a deeply unsettling talk, she walks us through the surprising impacts of low body and image confidence; from lower grade point averages to greater risk-taking with drugs and alcohol; and then shares the key things all of us can do to disrupt this reality.

Looks Aren’t Everything.  Believe Me, I’m a Model
Cameron Russell admits she won “a genetic lottery” – she’s tall, pretty and an underwear model.  But don’t judge her by her looks.  In this fearless talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16 years old.
