UsTrendy, a non-profit, isn’t just giving away beautiful dresses, it connects girls with important mentors like psychologist Mia Holland.
“Social media has made it worse, because it’s now ubiquitous. And for vulnerable girls it’s a big influence,” Holland said.
She and Northeastern University Associate Professor Rachel Rogers are teaming up to help these girls deal with social and cultural pressures.
“And to be very critical of the messages they are receiving,” Rogers said.
