Video of the Week: "Alessia Cara - Scars To Your Beautiful"

Shout out to one of my students, Miriam, for sending me this week’s video. I recommend playing it with closed captioning.

Here are the questions we’ll be discussing:

  • Do you think it’s possible for the world to change its heart? What would be some action steps that would need to happen?

  • What’s the effect of adding these personal story to the music video? Do you mind the interruption?

  • How would you define “beautiful”?

  • “Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” - Brene Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection, p. 50. How does this video fit with that message?

  • How might YOU be part of the world changing its heart?
