Don’t tell me I’m beautiful

A young woman performs a spoken-word piece about the pressures on young females around body image. “Don’t Tell Me I’m Beautiful” incorporates how social media specifically affects young girls. “We were told that being yourself is enough, yet if we don’t conform then the kickback is rough.” Watch the short film by Media Arts Center San Diego.
