In 2013, Dove released a video called “Dove Real Beauty Sketches” to show how people, women specifically, are instinctively critical of their appearance and personality. ACHONA decided to select a few Academy girls, and get them to candidly describe themselves. Then, their friends were recruited to describe how they perceive their friend. Results proved that when describing themselves, the girls felt more flawed than their friends believed they were.
