Abstract

This paper talks about the overwhelming effects that social media has on young girls specifically ages 10-19. Social media is very prevalent in modern day society and can make young adolescent girls feel pressure to fit in to certain beauty and style standards. This effects their mental health as the stress of living up to these standards only gets harder with pressure from peers. I explore the importance of mental health and try to better understand the psyche of adolescent girls.
