Twiggy’s influence on fashion and modeling is still present in the world today through her involvement in television shows, magazines, and product commercials; as well as the influence she has had on women’s fashion today between keeping older women fashion forward and designing clothing for all women, and her attempt to fight against the negative side effects that comes with a world full of super models.

I quote them, “What these pageants communicate to participants is false conception such as: beauty merits recognition and self-worth based on physical attributes.” Is the strive to become “the complete package” in one of the fastest growing industries in American culture detrimental to self esteem or healthy competition? Beauty pageants entered American society in the 1920’s.
Miss Havisham controlled every aspect of her life and gave Estella very little freedom. Miss Havisham is very bitter after she received a letter from Compeyson and realized that he defrauded her on her wedding day. Her wedding dress symbolizes her inability to let go of her dispicable past, which is parallel to her house, which still has the wedding cake on her table.

If I dance in front of people I am confident because I always dance in my room. Other people are shy, they don’t want to show their talent, they are dancing facing the mirror, they are singing while they are taking a bath. And I am like that. When my mom starting me to transfer a better school she choose an international school because she wants me to enroll college in Canada. And I was so proud to my mom that day.
