ShimmerTeen™ is a new brand of health and lifestyle media for high school girls.
If you are in high school, we know (from experience) that things like dating, tons of homework, and prom dress shopping can raise questions. Sexual health, stress relief, and weight management are a few topics that come to mind. Sound familiar?
We also know that finding the right information can be complicated. Friends don’t always know the answers, doctors aren’t always reachable, and an awkward conversation with a knowing adult may not be an attractive option. At ShimmerTeen™, we’re rounding up the best information we can find so that you can find the answers you want.
We will keep you posted on the latest news, tips, and trends, relevant to your life. We will also share the tried and true lessons we’ve learned (and are still learning) from our personal experiences. We feel it only fair to let you in on the secrets that have made our own lives easier.
- The ShimmerTeen™ Team
So, join us. We’ll be launching our site later this spring. We can’t wait to show you!
