The website includes articles written by members of the youth about their opinions, fashion trends and accessories.

The website also features photos taken by youth on a monthly basis.

“The site is about teenagers and their interests and hobbies,” Henry said. “It’s an outlet where teenagers can talk about what they love and can express themselves without being judged.”

Youth between the ages of nine and 16 can submit articles for publication on the website.

“I thought it would be a magazine for girls, but lots of people want to contribute and I want to reach a larger audience,”
Henry said.

The online magazine was inspired by a lack of teen voice in the community.

“Teenagers don’t have a voice other than social media,” Henry said. “I would really like to report on things that interest me and others as well.”

Henry's magazine features photography and a variety of articles.

Henry enjoys having the online magazine because she can connect with people her age who want to write about the things that they care about.

“I am able to see what people go through,” Henry said. “It really affects me and it moves me, and it can inspire people.”
