More Than Just a Pretty Face
by Joan Therese Dela Cruz
As teenagers, looking good is already part of our concerns. We become extra anxious on how we look and act and how it affects our peers. But is looking good all that we should care about?
Looks can be deceiving. Even in the market, beautiful packaging easily draws us. But smart consumers know what’s good for them, and that is why we look into the contents, the ingredients, and the benefits.
All of us are beautiful, but let us add substance into that beautiful packaging. People would love to know more about you when they talk to you, but getting-to-know talks can be uncomfortable and nerve-wracking for some.
The English language plays a big role in making a lasting good impression. It displays prestige and competitiveness. This may be the reason for some being nervous and uncomfortable in making a good first impression in first talks.
Being fluent in English is already a necessity in this competitive world. If one knows how to speak well, he/she can express himself/herself more. He/She can be remembered as more than just a pretty face, and that is because he/she knows how to speak up and introduce himself/herself to his/her peers with confidence.
Let us add substance into that beautiful packaging. Everyone can achieve English fluency. Practice and improve. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and apologize. Learn something new.
Be proud of yourself. No matter how cliché this line is, it always works: be yourself. Be real and be proud of it. Let your confidence and personality shine through and be the sunshine beneficial to others. Speak up and leave an impact with the people you are with and your beauty will be more visible, truly beautiful.
Be more than just a pretty face; let us add substance into that beautiful packaging. Speak up, be confident, and be truly beautiful.
