Did you know that the demographic that proudly proclaims itself as ‘teenagers’ constitutes a hefty fifth of our country’s population. However, our representation in popular and broadcast media is dismal at its best. It isn't easy being labelled ‘difficult, complex and kind of scary’ by the world when nobody really tries to listen anyway. Which is why I decided to create a platform that allows these majestic misunderstood creatures, better known as teens, to express themselves in a way any adult would.
The Teen Tribune is a weekly newspaper that serves as an adolescent coffee accompaniment( or Bournvita milk, I know coffee isn’t really the #1 parent choice) to talk about anything and everything, unfiltered and unapologetic. We discuss current affairs, finance, science & technology, fashion, food, fitness and basically anything that’s happening today and needs our attention. We even have columns for anonymous advice by our resident ‘Nextpert: Not an expert but the next best thing!’ and our in-house corporate wiz ‘Miss Futuristic: Adulting the real way!’ We also feature new initiatives teens may be part of along with their creative endeavours like art, articles, songs and dance.
We've been lucky to grow soon and grow happy. Hopefully that'll only get amplified! Until next time, stay woke!
