    HORRIBLE!!!! Is the only word I could think of when I saw this photo. It just can’t be real. People don’t realize the importance of a good first impression. Not only will people automatically judge you on your appearance, they will also assume that you don’t take yourself or your work seriously. Therefore, it is extremely important to carry yourself in a respectable and professional manner.
