Zhang Shimin “Jasmine” – Healthy Body Image

Body image refers to how people see themselves. Have you notice that 58 percent of college-aged girls feel pressured to be a certain weight. Children with positive body image usually like most things about themselves. They like they way they looked. Teenagers who feel good about themselves make friends easily. And they try new things.  Most of the time, you see yourself accurately, you feel comfortable with you body.

Children with negative body image usually don’t like the way they looked. And they don’t really like about themselves.

There is a lot you can do to improve your body image, even without changing your body. Some people choose to change the way they feel about their bodies. Many times, talking with a person you trust, such as a friend or family member, about the way you feel can help.Have you notice, when teenagers try out new hairstyles and clothes, they are making a statement about themselves. Celebrate all of the amazing things your body does for you—running, dancing, breathing, laughing, dreaming, etc. Keep a top-ten list of things you like about yourself—things that aren’t related to how much you weigh or what you look like.

Connor, Second – Hand Smoking

The topic I am presenting is “Second – Hand Smoking” or (SHS). SHS has affected all of us at one point or another. Have you ever walked but a group of smokers and tasted the smoke in you’re mouth? Well I am sure everyone has, that is second – hand smoking. This affects teenagers everywhere, most teenagers want to get out of their homes and go out with their friends. But people smoke everywhere, and therefore teenagers get it into their systems little by little. Before I researched and read up on this topic, I didn’t really think that it was as bad for you as it actually is. I didn’t realize that it increases the chance of heart disease, lung cancer and many more diseases. I learned that even is you don’t smoke, you can still have the same health risks because everyone doing it around you. Some solutions associated SHS that have been are put into action are workplaces and indoor public places, including restaurants, bars and nightclubs, as well as others. There are countless problems connected with the issue of second – hand smoking, there are many diseases as well as disabilities. You can even die from SHS. My final opinion on this issue is that we should take more action into decreasing the amount of smoking allowed. This will not only help to stop innocent people from dying, but it will be better for the smokers themselves. My thinking has changed from me thinking that this wasn’t that big of an issue, into what I think now which is that we should take some action into solving this problem.


Dalton- Dangers of Marijuana


It’s important because it showed me that marijuana might not be as dangerous as other drugs, but it could still effect you in a big way. It effects teenagers because  teens might think that it is cool to do marijuana and end up hurt. I learned that marijuana is a very common drug in America and that it is dangerous to my health and intelligence. Some problems connected to this issue is loss of brain cells and Iq. This is really bad for teens. I would say that marijuana is a powerful drug that can change somebodies life in a bad way. My thinking has changed because I used to think that this drug wasn’t that bad. Now I think that it is dangerous and should never be used.
