Every day, there are girls who look in the mirror and all they see is fat and ugly. Every day, boys look at themselves and say, “too scrawny”, “to fat”, “not enough muscles”.

The media influences people all the time to have a negative body image and nobody is doing anything to stop it.

I need to be in a creative environment or I feel mundane, and my creativity is at its peak when I act.

At the start, Melinda had lost all of her friends after she busted a party last summer, but nobody knows that a senior boy at the party raped her.
Peers had several ways that they pressure or influence Melinda Sordino’s life; they were talking to her all time and give her bad advice (Halse).

Peers influenced my friend to not go school and be a school hater student, go to parties, and date someone.

She hated that I was a pageant girl, that I played with barbies, and how much I loved my mom. I cried myself to sleep from the loss of mommy love. If I cried too loud, she beat me.
