My group and I from Dover Grammar School Sixth Form feel that body image is negatively portrayed in the media.
Young people can be brought up to believe that they need to look a certain way without realising that there are more important things in life.
The media can have a negative effect on individuals who feel like they should strive for an unattainable body ideal.
With the help of Fixers, we’re organising a flash mob on 17th of June to encourage people to believe in themselves and feel happy just the way they are.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
