I think that representation is a really big deal – in a world where we choose our actors, singers, dancers based on their ability to approximate a single stereotype of beauty first and their talent second, many of us rarely get to see someone who looks like us in a positive light in the media. I think that this video is a great example of how to do it better.  Here it is, enjoy!
