Pop star Angie Brown was at Calderdale College helping students develop positive images as part of a new campaign.
It aims to look beyond the mirror, showing how it is not what is on the outside that matters.
It looks at inspiring confidence and aims to bring different voices together to talk about the issues facing young people, like bullying, body image or uncertainty about how we look and dress. The campaign is also about encouraging young people to have a positive image of themselves and those around them.
Angie Brown, famous for hits with Bizarre Inc. including ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ and ‘Took My Love’ sang with Music students on a specially penned song ‘Stand Tall’, which is the theme for the campaign.
Staff and students were given a make-under to emphasise inner-beauty and encouraged to leave their thumb and hand prints on the college’s campaign wall.
Business student Amy Waite, who will be blogging to support the campaign, said: “It’s what you think about yourself that is important. If people don’t accept you because of your image they probably envy you or have their own problems.”
There is more information about the campaign available from www.lookbeyondthemirror.co.uk.
