One thought on “OWA Episode #7: Alex Apple From MTV’s ‘Stranded’

  1. Loved it Aubry! When you talked about the stereotypes of Brain vs Brawn vs Beauty, it made me think of a discussion that we had in class one day. Often times, when labels are put on people, they internalize them and become that label, even if they really aren’t. That is way blanket statements and stereotypes can be so damaging to people.
