Empowering Teens: Navigating the Impact of Social Media on Positive Body Image
Social media’s influence on adolescent perceptions of body image is undeniable. This event aims to increase awareness of the intricate relationship between social media and body positivity among adolescents. Through an interactive art project and insightful discussion, we aspire to equip adolescents with some of the tools they need to cultivate a healthy, positive body image in today’s digital landscape. Join us at this empowering workshop as we strive to foster self-love, confidence, and resilience in younger generations.
