My mother suggested I switch the girls' appearances around. "Why can't the short plain girl fall in love and win the dance competition?" queried my mother.

This feedback was a bombshell. Even at 12 years old I had never countenanced that short ugly people deserved good things too. In my defence, it wasn't a narrative we were offered all that much.
