I am almost 16 years old and attend an all girls private Catholic High School. Over the course my 3 years at an all girls school I have noticed a major issue in our society that suprisingly, has recieved little efforts or attention to combat it. This poison filtering in the minds of young girls everywhere is low self confidence. Although seemingly trite, there are many causes for this issue, and it has impacted our society in a severely negative way. I feel like the promblem of drastic increases in low self esteem amongst young women has become uncontrolable. It's honesly become an unheard of blessing to love yourself and exert confidence. I do not know any young women or role models of my age who posses undeniable confidence. There are hundreds of causes for low self esteem in young girls. Gender discrimination, Poor home life, pressures to be thin, the media, gossip, and school, are only a small percentage of poor confidence "catylists." Low self esteem is not something that we should ignore, the damages it has on our society are immense. This, i hope you agree, is a problem, and im prepared to find a solution.
