What are the voices we're not hearing? In My Comment, we follow the thoughts and ideas of teens who aren't getting representation or the platform to be heard. This is our effort to highlight authentic ideas and narratives as told by the people most important in these stories: the teens themselves. We're hoping to find the most unique perspectives that aren't being heard in the media and get them out in the world so that more people can connect with these subcultures and identities.
