How can my school get involved in National #MyTrueSelfie Day?
We're encouraging schools to take part in National #MyTrueSelfie Day!
There are over 1 million selfies taken each day but we feel that the ‘self’ part of these pictures is getting a little lost. Body image and self-esteem is also a growing issue in the UK, particularly amongst young people: around half of girls and up to one third of boys have dieted to lose weight, and over half of bullying experienced by young people in a 2014 study was because of appearance.
At The Diana Award we are all about encouraging people to celebrate what makes us different and unique.
That’s why we’ve created #MyTrueSelfie. It’s a little different to most apps- you don’t get the option to whiten your teeth, add a filter or re-shape your face. We’ve re-imagined the selfie and created a selfie site that represents who you are and all those qualities that make you, YOU.
National #MyTrueSelfie Day is on Tuesday 18th July and we want your school to get involved! Here’s how:
- Lead a #MyTrueSelfie session for your students: to download the 45-minute session plan, click here
- Sign up to our Thunderclap to show you be taking part in National #MyTrueSelfie Day – click here
- Create your very own #MyTrueSelfie on the homepage and upload/share to social media on the 18th July using the hashtag #MyTrueSelfie
- Encourage everybody in your school to take their very own #MyTrueSefie!
We hope you enjoy getting involved and we look forward to seeing your very own #MyTrueSelfie!
