I am... A Teenage Girl's Burden

Expectations
Reality
Decisions
Magazines, Television, Peers
Doing things that are “average”
Girls being transformed by other girls’ burdens


Identity Unknown
Led by perceptions
Judged by girls, judged by parents, judged by society
Role Models are Models
Unrealistic
Girls being transformed by other girls’ burdens


Self-hate, low self esteem
Burdens of a girl who is the image of a hateful society
Burdens of a girl who doesn’t know how to love herself
Girls being transformed by other girls’ burdens.
