Her screen name is "sgal901", and she wants to know if she's pretty or if she's ugly. But rather than ask her parents or ponder it with her friends, this middle-school student decides instead to pose the question to the world at large, via YouTube. Smiling sweetly at her laptop and donning a knit cap made to look like a koala bear "sgal901" does what middle school girls do: She complains of being called ugly by some and "oh-my-gosh-so-beautiful" by others.
