"When you seek beauty in all people and all things, you will not only find it, you will become it" - Anonymous.

Hi, my name is Sam and I'm a 20 year old Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences student at Michigan State University. I was interested in this project because of the ethnic diversity of our group, as well as previous classes that have opened my eyes to the idea of beauty throughout the globe and how varied the perception of beauty is. Living in a society that has a rather limited and unrealistic view of beauty, I found what other cultures find beautiful intriguing and interested in finding out if there was a scientific basis behind physical beauty.

What does "Beauty" mean to me: To me, beauty is all about finding the beauty of others and of everything around you. If you are physically beautiful, it won't matter if you do not find the light in others, and are able to appreciate others for what they have to offer and the wonderful things inside of them. Beauty is not finding certain things attractive, and certain things unattractive, it's about finding everything beautiful for it's uniqueness and the beautiful things they have to offer the world by just being themselves. To be beautiful yourself, you must find and appreciate the beauty within everything around you.
