Hello, and welcome to Kaleidoscope Teen Magazine’s fifth issue!
Thank you for coming along with us on this journey. We’ve made it to our fifth issue, and with every issue, we have made positive changes to this online magazine, with the layout, format, content, and more.
This theme for this issue is Mental Health and Wellness. In this issue, we will be talking about meditation, destigmatizing mental health in communities of color, the mental health of students during a global pandemic, and more.
The Girl of the Month for this issue is Josie Helm. Josie is a Junior in High school at The Brearley School in New York City. She is the Founder and Executive Director of Black Students Demanding Change (BSDC).
In each issue, we will still be talking about things that are happening in our world. So in addition to Health and Wellness articles there will also be articles talking about happenings around the world that our contributors and editors are passionate about.
I hope you enjoy this issue! There will be multiple articles and podcasts out each week.
