My younger sister has watched the Victoria Secret Fashion show since she discovered what it was 10 years ago. Now 18-years old, she is still a dedicated groupie of the models and the brand. I received a facetime call from her yesterday morning, as she ecstatically gushed about the girls that would be on the runway Sunday at 10 p.m. My sister idolizes one model in particular, Candice Swanepoel, claiming she is the most beautiful woman to walk this earth, and honestly, I’m sure many would agree.

It’s easy to get caught up in the commercialism and frenzy that’s so prevalent this time of year. There may be an unspoken competition your parents have with their siblings to provide the most elaborate dish at a family gathering and midnight shopping binges to get the best deals on the best clothes your sister is going to wear twice before giving away.
Between the 2015-2016 and 2017-2018 academic years, the numbers of Elon University’s non-white students studying abroad increased from 9 to 17.3 percent.
