I had a big battle with Apple, going back and forth, so it was a huge relief when it finally passed." She has since developed several more applications, including iPort, which helps models and other creative types organize their professional portfolios on an iPad . "I noticed so many models were using iPads to show casting directors their work, but it looked messy and didn't have a nice interface," Scott said. "So I made iPort as similar functionally as an actual portfolio but much more convenient." Her brother, Matthew, is one of her biggest fans. "Lyndsey is a mix of Bill Gates and Giselle (Bundchen)," said Matthew Scott. "She combines her passion for modeling and passion of coding to help improve our world." Last month, Scott visited a middle school in New York City's Harlem neighborhood to speak with students interested in computer programming. "We have this idea of people in technology being and looking a certain way," she said. "That stereotype is destructive, and I think that's part of the reason why female and minority programmers are so few." Scott said computer coding has now become a second professional life for her.

That is the question beauty product maker Dove set out to answer in a documentary short film that made its debut Monday at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Selfie follows a group of teenage girls from Massachusetts and their mothers who were asked to take selfies of the features of themselves they disliked the most. The mother-daughter duos then attend an event where their self-portraits are blown up and posted in a #BeautyIs selfie photo gallery. Doves Real Beauty Sketches Change Womens Image of Themselves The goal of the seven-minute film, according to Dove, is for the women to redefine their own beauty and see that insecurity often lies beneath the personal snapshots. The thing that I hide when I take my pictures is how big my hair looks, one teenage girl says in the film. I want my mom to know shes beautiful and that she doesnt have to change for anyone, says another. Selfie marks the 10th anniversary of Doves Campaign for Real Beauty, which included last years viral ad in which an FBI-trained forensic sketch artist drew a woman as she described herself, and then drew her as a total stranger described her, resulting in dramatic differences. Dove says its own research found that 62 percent of women feel they are responsible for influencing their own definition of beauty and that 55 percent of women believe social media plays a larger role in influencing the beauty conversation than traditional media. Tracey Clark , an author and blogger at Babble.com, says she made it a priority to watch Selfie, both for herself and her two daughters.
