In​ ​this​ ​generation,​ ​societal​ ​pressure​ ​plays​ ​a​ ​significant​ ​role​ ​in​ ​the​ ​daily​ ​lives​ ​of​ ​teens​ ​and
younger​ ​children.​ ​Lack​ ​of​ ​acceptance​ ​and​ ​the​ ​desire​ ​for​ ​popularity​ ​result​ ​in​ ​insecurities,
self-doubt​ ​and​ ​even​ ​obsession.​ ​My​ ​big​ ​wake​ ​up​ ​call​ ​came​ ​when​ ​an​ ​elementary​ ​schooler​ ​at​ ​the
Boys​ ​and​ ​Girls​ ​Club​ ​came​ ​to​ ​me​ ​crying​ ​about​ ​her​ ​lack​ ​of​ ​Instagram​ ​followers.​ ​Nonetheless,
teens​ ​try​ ​to​ ​stray​ ​away​ ​from​ ​discussing​ ​the​ ​societal​ ​effect​ ​peer​ ​pressure​ ​has​ ​in​ ​their​ ​lives.​ ​Allow
me​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​a​ ​scenario;​ ​it​ ​was​ ​noon​ ​when​ ​we​ ​were​ ​asked​ ​to​ ​write​ ​down​ ​what​ ​the​ ​word
“identity”​ ​meant​ ​to​ ​us​ ​during​ ​the​ ​“My​ ​Name​ ​My​ ​Story”​ ​Changemaker​ ​Day​ ​workshop​ ​at​ ​my
school.​ ​Every​ ​student​ ​began​ ​to​ ​vigorously​ ​write​ ​down​ ​their​ ​life​ ​journey​ ​into​ ​notebook​ ​paper.
When​ ​everyone​ ​finished,​ ​we​ ​were​ ​asked​ ​to​ ​answer​ ​an​ ​even​ ​more​ ​challenging​ ​question.​ ​The
leader​ ​of​ ​the​ ​workshop​ ​stood​ ​up​ ​and​ ​asked​ ​us​ ​all,​ ​“How​ ​do​ ​social​ ​standards​ ​impact​ ​your
identity?”​ ​Another​ ​passionate​ ​session​ ​with​ ​pen​ ​and​ ​paper​ ​commenced​ ​among​ ​the​ ​students.​ ​The
atmosphere​ ​in​ ​the​ ​room​ ​felt​ ​relaxed​ ​and​ ​comfortable​ ​until​ ​we​ ​were​ ​individually​ ​asked​ ​to​ ​discuss
our​ ​answers​ ​in​ ​front​ ​of​ ​all​ ​of​ ​our​ ​peers.​ ​When​ ​they​ ​asked​ ​for​ ​volunteers,​ ​no​ ​one​ ​stepped​ ​up​ ​to​ ​the
plate,​ ​including​ ​me.​ ​In​ ​my​ ​head,​ ​I​ ​imagined​ ​myself​ ​standing​ ​up​ ​and​ ​blurting​ ​out​ ​that​ ​I​ ​was​ ​tired
of​ ​feeling​ ​as​ ​if​ ​my​ ​ethnicity​ ​and​ ​body​ ​figure​ ​were​ ​the​ ​only​ ​parts​ ​of​ ​me​ ​that​ ​people​ ​saw.​ ​However,
like​ ​most​ ​of​ ​us​ ​in​ ​the​ ​room,​ ​I​ ​was​ ​too​ ​afraid​ ​to​ ​discuss​ ​the​ ​topic.
That​ ​was​ ​the​ ​day​ ​when​ ​I​ ​realized​ ​that​ ​societal​ ​pressures​ ​impact​ ​all​ ​of​ ​us​ ​in​ ​some​ ​way,
though,​ ​the​ ​conversation​ ​could​ ​become​ ​uncomfortable​ ​because​ ​eve...
