“I do not believe that it affects me, but I think it affects those who choose to go with the trends of fashion and what’s popular so that it affects their perception of me and the people around them.”

“Yes, I’d say the media has an influence on my self-image. You can’t help but be surrounded by images and opinions of how you’re supposed to look.”

“I think that the media definitely affects people’s self image. I personally try not to pay much attention to it, but honestly I would say that it’s pretty much inescapable.”
