18-year-old high school student Shea Glover, from Chicago, decided to film one truly amazing social experiment. She took the streets of Chicago and interviewed people and filmed their reactions when they were called beautiful.
She approached people with her camera and told them: “I’m taking pictures of things I find beautiful.” Peoples’ reactions are unforgettable and priceless in every single way. This just proves to show you how much you can do with a compliment and what a difference it makes just to say a few nice words to someone.
“I conducted an independent project which evidently turned into a social experiment regarding beauty,” Shea Glover wrote on YouTube. “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.” she said.
