Welcome to From Our Eyes.
This is a blog written by teens, for teens. We write blogs about REAL problems; the pressures from social media, sexual harassment within school, how youth are portrayed and treated by the media etc.
But instead of your average teen advice website which, most of the time are so obviously written by adults...
These articles come from the source.
The 'Teen Topics' page addresses issues like those listed above, and shines light on things you may not have thought of before... for example - is judging someone for their Facebook profile the same as talking behind their back? (Read the 'ONLINE JUDGEMENT' blog to find out).
On the 'Trending' page you will find recent news stories, videos, public events etc. about young people, with a short summary written by one of our writers. It's purpose is to make you more aware of what's going on for teenagers worldwide.
The 'Our Videos' page is pretty self explanatory - it's for videos! We work with various movie makers to produce videos about what is really going on for teenagers nowadays, such as the 'Reality for Girls in School Today'.
If you're ever in need of advice, or want to get in touch with the From Our Eyes team, just go to the 'Contact' page and we will be happy to help and assist as best we can.
A MESSAGE FROM THE TEEN TEAM
It's awesome to have you on the site!
We are a group of young people, dedicated to providing a safe haven for you to freely express any worries or experiences you've had as a teenager - an adult free zone.
Our aim has always been to create a website that has articles which teens can relate to and understand... And hopefully ones that can help you understand more about the world, your body and being a teen! The statistics for things like self-harm and social media addiction are going through the roof for our generation, and the only people who 'seem' to be concerned about it are the adults (and according to the Internet, we are powerless to the things happening in OUR lives).
WE HAVE A VOICE TOO, and are equally worried about where society is going. There is no reason these topics shouldn't be talked about it in school... but as you all must know education isn't always helpful when it comes to preparing us for life (or talking about the real stuff). That's where From Our Eyes come in...
THIS IS YOUR WEBSITE - MAKE THE MOST OF IT
We look forward to reading your comments and inputs. Feel free to contact us at any time (on the Contact page), and let us know about what it's like being a teen for you. Or if you have any questions fire away!
