Beautiful People: This College Student Lived It
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That is, unless your name is Felicia Czochanski and you believe that gorgeousness is the epitome of the reflection you see in the mirror every day.
Czochanski recently penned a journal entry on Cosmopolitan.com. Titled, “People Judge Me Because I’m Pretty,” the Fordham University student helped us understand the inner struggles of being devastatingly beautiful. She also told us her bra size (34DD, just FYI, in case you wanted to know).
Among her grievances, Czochanski asks us to, “Imagine how it feels to have heads turn and all eyes on you when you are simply trying to get to where you need to be.” She also explains that, “Coming to terms with being perceived as “beautiful” wasn't easy.”
While many commenters have taken to Czochanski’s rant to comment on her looks, I’d like to comment on something else — my pity for this very, very ignorant and naive girl.
As a college junior with a slew of important-looking internships on her LinkedIn profile and a bunch of “Likes” on her Instagram photos, Czochanski is now a “professional” who will have to live with this viral post making her sound like a stuck-up, privileged white girl on the Internet, forever.
Czochanski, all women can relate to being cat-called and overlooked in different ways because of their gender. This is why feminism exists. Maybe a more healthier approach than complaining on the Internet would be to put your efforts toward joining the feminist movement, or advocating for women's rights everywhere.
Either way, if you're worried about Czochanski's future, you can read her blog — where she shows off all those exceptional things you overlook because of her beauty — here.
