A Marquette University student responded to a controversial article about personal development Monday from Clutch Magazine. The content advised an alternative to the status quo of acting unique.
The article recommended people pursue the personalities of other individuals. But society encouraged "being yourself" as crucial advice for increasing confidence and accepting a personal identity.
Casby Bias, journalism major at the Diederich College of Communication, said the article didn't mean any harm.
"I don't feel like the article is telling us women to shift away from who we are," Bias said. "Rather, it's informing us how to shift away from the person the society perceives us as and further toward the person we want to be."
Bias also pointed out to reporters her own role model in support of the article's message.
"I'd like Gabrielle Union's professional attitude she shows in her movies," Bias said. "Yep: a 'no-nonsense' type."
