  • HBL'S I Matter Project - Body Image & low self esteem 2020
    February 6, 2020      Photo
    During the I matters workshop we discussed body image and low self-esteem the young people opened up and expressed their opinions about what is meant to be the norm and how you should look according to the media, where as in reality this is very different. The young people understood that majority of people don’t like something about their body and it is important not to bully others about their appearance as this leads to them having a low self-esteem.
