Advertisement has had a negative impact on people's body image and self-esteem, particularly young girls. This talk is a call to action to truly understand that these body ideals simply do not exist, and to promote healthy self-image.

Sofia Rodriguez-Dantzler is a sixth grader at Scarlett Middle school. She enjoys art and likes to sketch people. Her other interests include running and being a part of the track team. She would like to talk about body image because she knew a girl who was bullied because of her size even though she was healthy and a kind person.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
