Be More You.
Welcome to the Be More blog! We are so excited that you are here. If you're new to the Be More community, we'd love to share our mission with you:
Be More is an organization committed to teaching youth the importance of self-esteem and mental wellbeing, and examining the role that social media plays in their lives. Constant, uneducated exposure to social media is creating an epidemic of kids with poor self-image, high levels of anxiety, and under-developed relationship skills. By creating a community of support, encouragement, and empowerment through our in-school curriculum and digital campaigns, Be More teaches kids how to build each other up and prevent negative conversations and behaviors that often lead to poor self-esteem, eating disorders, anxiety, and many other mental health issues.
We are starting this blog as a way to include and feature more of you in the work that we're doing. Missions like this one truly take a village...they require participation and advocacy from as many as people as possible. If we are really going to change the landscape of social media, then we need as many of you involved as we can get! These conversations impact all of us, regardless of age, gender, sexual preference, political party, race, or nationality. So speak up and join in - we would love to hear from you!
