In May, Shea Glover, an 18-year-old high school student, conducted a social experiment at her Chicago performing arts school.
Glover set out to capture honest and raw reactions from people as they were told they are beautiful.
In the video's description, Shea writes,
I conducted an independent project, which evidently turned into a social experiment halfway through, regarding beauty at my performing arts high school in Chicago. I want to clarify that my intentions were not to get a reaction out of people. I was simply filming beauty and this is the result. Here it is.
Shea's project-turned-social-experiment is nothing short of stunning and incredibly moving.
As you see the students' faces light up, and a few in complete disbelief, it's hard to not want to reach out and shake them to tell them just how beautiful they really are.
