For my research project, it is pretty much almost done. For this week I discussed the core of my research which is discussing why a lot of magazines such as the ones in which I have discussed in my paper have a negative influence. A lot of teens these days want to be just like their role models, or favorite actors/actresses. I think that a lot of adults don’t actually realize that our youth in society has been affected by a lot of these magazines questioning them “Who they really are?” and it takes their personalities out of them forcing them or persuading them into becoming this symbolizing figures such as their role models. It crushes their self-esteem, pride, confidence, and it creates a whole different individual and that’s why I believe that they have a negative influence.
