"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." -Confucius

Hey there! My name is Raven, and I am a 20 year old student at Michigan State University. I am of Middle Eastern decent, so I found it extremely interesting to have the opportunity to further explore my heritage, and its traditional beauty customs and beliefs. 

Define Beauty: For me, beauty is something that sends chills up your spine, puts a huge smile on your face, and remains replaying in the back of your mind for days. It could be an adult, a child, a piece of art, a movie, a book, a moment... anything that gives you a tingling feeling. To me, beauty of a women resides in a woman's ability to be confident, but still humble, in her caring and selfless nature, and her sense of drive and passion.

I'm producing/presenting a discursive programme on social taboos in the Middle East at Levant TV (levant.tv) called "Forbidden Talk". Our next programme will focus on "Beauty in the Middle East" and how it is perceived.

I would really like to interview one of you - I was particularly interested in your section about beauty in the Middle East.

For previous episodes please see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=099IV53wYas and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7qa_6PgVuw

The episode will be recorded 4.45pm (London time) Thursday 30th October. We should be finished by 6.15pm.

Is someone available to join our discussion tomorrow? My email is anna@levant.tv

Many thanks and best wishes,

Anna Delaney
