This website draws attention to the growing issue of the way body image is expressed in media. The main goal when it comes to the viewers of this website is for any individual who is interested in this topic can learn more about it, but more specifically the website is for anyone who experiences negative body image or knows of someone who is. This topic speaks to me since I have grown up as technology has advanced and I have personally felt the pressures media has put on maturing males and females. My goal as a result of this website is to instill within the minds of my viewers a more positive outlook on themselves and others. I personally want my viewers to gain a sense of confidence and positivity while looking at my website because I enjoy helping others. Even if helping them is by boosting their confidence only a little.
This section is if you want to learn more about me and the way I became who I am today. This section of my website also describes the thoughts behind actually creating the full website and what each part represents. The reasoning behind the color scheme and layout might actually surprise you!
