#MGMakeover: Social-Media Challenges


Teen participants from MEDIAGIRLS share online a series of weekly social-media challenges to inspire girls to use social media for positive change. Girls everywhere can join our challenges, along with our participants, and post their reflections online. MEDIAGIRLS aims to transform social media as a breeding ground of insecurity for girls, to a space where girls support and inspire one another.
