Problem

By age 13, about 53% of American girls are unhappy with their bodies. By 17, it's 78%. And it’s not just girls either -- new research shows that close to 1 in 4 boys experience body dysmorphia.

Solution

Posting encouraging notes in bathrooms (a place that can trigger low self-esteem) can improve someone's self-esteem. Create and post encouraging notes in your school bathrooms to brighten your classmates' day!
