Obesity can happen to anyone and it’s something that everyone can overcome if they try hard enough. My brother has some similar problems, it’s not obesity, but he’s heavier than most kids his age. He’s comfortable the way he is, but he still hopes and exercises very much. I think that if I were obese, it’ll be very depressing, but I think I will be able to be comfortable the way I am. Even the way I am right now, I still have fantasies of getting a better body and looking better. And i think that the media plays a big part in this. The media is something that no one can avoid. People depend on the media to provide information and up-to-date news. So when things like fashion wear and such comes on, there’s ALWAYS those skinny and good looking models. And that unconsciously puts the thought that we want to be the same in to our heads.
Body Image is something that is usually caused by surroundings and I think that it happens mostly to teens. If you’re always being told that your body image looks bad or you’re being bullied and such because of body image, you really start to have low self-esteem. I think that from all the put-downs, they feel unaccepted, unwanted and etc. And my thinking is that in order to get accepted and stop the bullying, a person will go through great lengths.
To be honest, my mind was blank as we were going through the advertisements. As I was growing up, I never really ate sweets very much and I just get a little sick thinking about so much sugar. But it was still really tempting to just go along and do as they say because it’s a lot easier. And that’s what I think a lot of people do. They follow along because it’s easier than thinking outside the box and really looking at things carefully. And that’s a mistake that gets taken advantage of. In many ads, the real facts and health stuff that SHOULD be paid attention to are said fast and softly. And many people just don’t listen to what’s really there.

Asian Media Access’ 2010’s Youth Leadership Camp was held on October 21 – 24 at the Girl Scout Camp Elk River, with about 40 youth attending.
The 12-Hour Film Festival competition included all youth divided into 4 teams. In the first two days, the youth were put through the paces in learning media literacy, photography, video production, and video editing. On the third day, the competition started early at 8 AM, and finished at 9 PM.
The films are to be 5 to 10 minutes long, and they must include the following:
- Line of Dialogue: “Really? How does it work?”
- Prop: Leaves
- Character: Drake/Dandy – World’s top model
Each team also drew from a hat its genre and theme.
Following are the student’s practice work and their film festival entries.
