Who tells you how you should look? Who says you must be thin to be fashionable? Who says men must be all muscles! You are who you are. Thinking less about how you look and becoming more involved with friends, sports and activities, will keep you fit and stimulate your mind.
by Hazel Edwards
Your gender – whether you identify yourself as a boy or a girl – is one of the most basic things that goes towards making you who you are. Depending on your family, your culture and your society, your gender might have a big influence on how you behave and how other people treat you.
|Growth and Change
by Goldie Alexander & Hazel Edwards
You spend your first 16 to 18 years growing and developing. But it doesn’t stop there. Your body continues to change throughout your life.
|Hurdles to Relationships
by Hazel Edwards & Goldie Alexander
Friends and family can make our lives lots of fun. However, healthy and happy relationships don’t just happen. Getting along with people (whether family, friends or classmates) can make you feel like you are running an obstacle course. Problems can get in the way, or sometimes you just don’t know how to make friends.
|Improving Your Communication
by Goldie Alexander
Every day, you spend a lot of your time communicating. Your words, expressions and body language all send messages that other people interpret. Learning how to communicate starts very early in life and continues throughout your life. Not everyone finds communicating easy, but you can learn to improve your skills.

Muscles move you quickly or slowly and in different directions. You eat food and process it into energy while breathing in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide. Your heart pumps blood around you body.
|Who am I?
by Ann Harth
You are special. You are one of a kind. There is no-one in the world like you. You have unique DNA, unique fingerprints and the iris of your eyes is like no-one else’s. You have physical and emotional strengths and weaknesses and have grown up in an environment no-one else can copy.
