America is a beacon for immigrants like my Filipino parents who courageously desired to better themselves by seeking opportunity in the United States. Their older siblings toiled in rice farms in order to make a living and were supportive in ensuring better lifestyles for their younger siblings. Their siblings’ salaries successfully paved my parents’ path to becoming the first in their families to graduate with degrees in civil engineering and enter Canada; however, this step was just the beginning. A graveyard shift at the 7-Eleven gas station and a McDonald’s uniform were only a few of the hardships my parents were forced to come to terms with, but they became inured to adversity, and eventually, their determination was rewarded with a job opening in Brownsville, Texas.

In the short stories “Popular Mechanics,” “A Pair of Silk Stockings,” and “A&P,” each of the central characters suffer personal adversity in trying to redefine themselves, in which their success of reinvention
A large nose, acne-prone skin, single eyelids, and the list goes on. We all wish we could change that one imperfection we have. However, some of us can accept it and carry on with our lives; not for sufferers of body dysmorphic disorder.
Often, people of all ages, race, and gender catch themselves gazing into mirrors for hours, blaming themselves for the way they look, not realizing that the media is actually the one to blame for many people’s body image. Body image is the way people see themselves, or how they assume other people see them. It is not likely to see a plus sized model in a magazine or a model on the runway with blemishes on her face. A person’s negative perception of their own body is not because they think it is wrong to look and be healthy; it is because the media is telling them that being a size 2 with flawless skin is healthy and beautiful.
It is funny how so many girls and women today are led to believe that the only way to feel attractive and be beautiful is to have their bodies consist of nothing but skin and bones. Women are dieting more today then they have ever been before. They are striving for an unattainable body figure that is portrayed by the media as being the ideal standard for today's women. It gets worse. Not only are women dieting unlike ever before, but they will ruthlessly harm their bodies in order to achieve these inaccessible standards.
