Based on her global quest to connect with women all over the world, award-winning actress and makeup artist Eva DeVirgilis presents an original work, In My Chair. What started as an internationally renowned TEDx Talk flourished into a research trip to gather eye-opening perspectives on self-esteem, body image, and often unrealistic 21st Century beauty standards. Join DeVirgilis on her journey to find out why beauty is so closely tied to self-acceptance.
