Just received information about this incredible new site in the NEDA newsletter (the below is directly from their newsletter email!):
NEDA is thrilled to announce the launch of Proud2Bme, our new online community created for teens by teens.
Proud2Bme is a unique space where teens can connect with each other, get expert advice, and find inspiration to take action for change. We’ll cover everything from fashion and beauty to news, culture, and entertainment—all with the goal of promoting positive body image and encouraging healthy attitudes about food and weight.
“Being a teen myself and someone who works daily with teens through my non-profit to boost confidence, I am thrilled about the launch of Proud2Bme! A teen-focused site on disordered eating, body image and media literacy is exactly what we need in today’s world. I have no doubt it will make a positive impact,”
says Emily-Anne Rigal, 17, a Proud2Bme teen contributor and the founder of WeStopHate.org, a nonprofit program raising “teen-esteem” through online videos and social media.
Please share Proud2Bme with the young people in your life. Want to stay updated? Follow Proud2Bme on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
Proud2Bme was built by JPMorgan Chase’s Technology for Social Good volunteer efforts, in collaboration with University of Delaware students. The Hilda & Preston Davis Foundation and Globant (Argentina) also made generous contributions.
