Julie was my summer camp counselor in, like, 1993. It was so long ago, I don’t even remember how long ago it was. We ended up staying in touch a bit here and there, but like anything back in those days, it took a lot of effort (handwritten letters, long distance phone calls, etc.) So eventually we lost touch.
But the one gem she taught me which has stayed with me for 20-ish years?
“When you take a picture, instead of pointing your nose in the air, bring your chin down and look straight into the camera. You’ll appear more confident and your face will look slimmer.”
It’s true, even for celebrities.
