Apple Valley High School joined The Emily Program Foundation in a discussion about body image, bullying, and the media, alongside My Talk 107.1’s Colleen Lindstrom and Twin Cities Live Co-Host Elizabeth Ries. Colleen and Elizabeth shared their experience about being in the public eye- how it often leads people to send them bullying comments about their body via social media.
The hundreds of media images we see everyday can negatively effect our self image, and comments from our peers, colleagues, family, and friends can enforce that perception. We have the power to speak up and change the conversations we have about our bodies. Appearance-based bullying is the #1 form of bullying, and we can stop it.
