We would like people to watch our film and be more aware of what they say to others and themselves. We would also like St Bede's to include Self Esteem talks/lessons as part of PHSE for the next academic year.
We chose this title as we hope people will watch our film and realise that everybody is their own treasure and if they need to discover what that means to them we hope that this website might be able to do so. When we started working with Sharp Shotz we were asked what issues or problems we faced as teenagers and what would we like to change the most ... how we think and feel about our bodies was a current theme we had continually faced over the years and knew many of our friends had too.
We were also really aware that bullying and the prevalence of social media was not something we could solve in one day or with one campaign, however we are determined to get our school at least recognising this is an issue and offering support to students. Hopefully if we can change our own community other people may realise they can do the same. Which is exactly how we tackled our own body image issues.
We believe in the power of building each other up and the idea that one comment from a friend can change someone's perspective we like to dream of what could happen if everybody watched our film and took a tiny action to help our cause.
