Here, he gives a glorious, live reprise with backstory and violin accompaniment by Hannah Epperson.

Self-Image/Beauty

  • DOVE Evolution 
  • Dove Real Beauty Sketches 
  • How To Change What You Find Attractive In 60 Seconds Media has a way of glorifying men with large muscles and women who are skinny. This is especially troubling for women, as they see thinness being associated with beauty, leading to eating disorders and women who are underweight. But just how long does it take to affect someone? Laci answers this tough question and also explains why the glorification of underweight women can have a ton of negative effects.

Education

  • Ask students Why Middle School?  What's it all about? What do they think are the student issues/feelings compared to the teacher?  Watch Why Middle School? (A clip created with Dacien Hadland to bring about the data and anecdotal research from being a middle school teacher. I have created this with the help of Middle School students, in their voice.) Then watch Why Middle School Matters (3mins), which focuses on a teacher perspective. Do students have any concluding thoughts?
  • Why I Hate School But Love Education||Spoken Word As the cyclical and seemingly never ending debate about education rages on, the topic - somewhat ironically, often poses more questions than it provides answers. But what is the value of mainstream schooling? Why is it that some of the most high profile and successful figures within the Western world openly admit to never having completed any form of higher learning? Paying homage to Jefferson Bethke's "Why I Hate Religion but Love Jesus", a piece that received 22 million views in the space of a week, I address a number of these issues in my offering "Why I Hate School, but Love Education".
  • I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate||Spoken Word "I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate" picks up on the education topic but takes a different stance and angle from "Why I Hate School But Love Education". This poem talks about how we have been made to think about how education and getting university degrees can give us opportunities to have a better chance in making our dream careers a reality. It also touches on how as individuals we are judged and tested by how well we perform on exams, but not all people perform well in exams so why are they made out to feel like they're dumb? The inconsistencies of the education system are really peeled open to reveal a deep problem that needs to be addressed and how society's needs have changed to make this even more apparent.

Creativity

  • How To Be Creative | Off Book | PBS Digital Studios Creativity has always been essential for our cultural growth, but there are still many misconceptions about this elusive process. Not the left-brain/right-brain binary that we've come to believe, being creative is considerably more complex, and requires a nuanced understanding of ourself and others. Being a powerful creative person involves letting go of preconceived notions of what an artist is, and discovering and inventing new processes that yield great ideas. Most importantly, creators must push forward, whether the light bulb illuminates or not.
