The TrueTube film ‘My Changing Face’ reflects the true meaning of beauty. It is the story of a brave young lady called Jess Lee who has Apert Syndrome. This is a genetic disorder which causes certain skull bones to fuse together affecting the shape of the head and face. Apart from health problems, such as the brain being unable to grow properly, the physical appearance caused by the condition can leave people feeling isolated and withdrawn. Jess describes how she felt happy as a child and didn’t feel different from the other children around her. It is only as she grew up, and faced the cruelty and pressure of other people’s opinions, that she began to lose her confidence and seek out operations to make her appearance seem more ‘normal.’ Jess has had some clinical operations to ensure the stability of her health, and some cosmetic operations because of the pressure to fit in with the world around her. This young lady has come out of it all proud of who she is and with the clear message: ‘Just be who you want to be’. Jess puts the world of vanity to shame, by standing up for who she is and being secure in her own identity - a quality that many people in the world of cosmetic beauty do not possess. For young students, this film will help them see the world of physical appearance for the narrow view that it is and how personality is the key to true beauty.
