Helen Keller, who could not see, understood beauty better than most. "The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart," she said. She is right of course, but most of us would agree that seeing something beautiful is its own special pleasure.
We wanted to know who you considered to be the region's most physically attractive people. We got dozens of very beautiful submissions. It was hard to choose, but here are this year's most Beautiful People!
Kaylee Kowalczyk, 24, of Portage has known for a long time that she wanted a career in medicine. "My mom has had cancer for nine years so that has really influenced me," she says. "Everything that she has gone through and seeing the doctors made me want to be involved in helping others."
Kaylee is currently an emergency medical technician with Ebensburg Ambulance Association and works with Allegheny Healthsource. A graduate of Mount Aloysius, she plans to attend Penn State Altoona for her nursing degree in August. She eventually hopes to become a nurse practitioner. "I would like to do orthopedic surgery," she says. "I really like to be 'hands on' and surgery fascinates me. It is so interesting. When I learn about medicine, I want to learn more."
