How do we fight against societal messages that make us feel like we aren’t beautiful? In this episode, we interview teens and family members and tell our own stories about experiences with body image and how we accept who we are, despite cultural stereotypes.
“It doesn’t matter what anybody else does, it only matters what you think about yourself because you’re the one who has to live with yourself. So don’t try to change yourself for someone else because they’re not the one who’s living your life, you’re living your life…When I stopped caring what other people thought, I was happy, I was cool. I loved myself, who I was and I didn’t change myself.”-Student
