Campaign: To encourage media outlets to use their influence for good

I want to highlight the pressure that I feel is placed on young people by the media.

I believe the things we are shown on TV and in magazines can cause others my age to develop an unhealthy attitude towards body image.


They might feel they need to follow the ‘norm’, when actually it’s okay to be different.


I believe that the media could do more to support young people.


For example, more coverage of topics including domestic abuse and self-harm could help those with experience of these issues who may otherwise be feeling isolated.
