My magazine is called "Flava" and it is aimed at teenagers, as when I researched on magazines I found this one was quite popular. I spent 4 weeks on my magazine and put a lot of effort into it.

Also on the front cover, I have included the price, a barcode and a logo, "Girls with taste get Flava". For my barcode I used the search engine "Google" and typed in barcodes. I found one and cut copied and pasted again. ...read more.

  1. How are teenagers represented in the media?

    The view represented in this article is positive. I have come to this decision because it shows the ambitions, dedication and achievements that a teenager can accomplish and the article writes about a teenager that has.
