“The most important thing I learned at Sisters Action Media was how to make a stand on something you believe in. I loved learning about the media and then applying it to an actual film that I made.”  – Singley

Sisters Action Media produced this video (edited by Singley Risico) in support of the Keep It Real Challenge, a campaign asking mainstream magazines to drop photoshop.

Sisters Action Media is FAAN Mail’s pilot youth media program for teen girls Philadelphia. Learn more about the Campaign on FAAN Mail’s website.


This week students started editing footage for their personal films. We are using the program Final Cut Pro.


Students are exploring a range of topics in their films:

Teen girls and self-esteem
Peer pressure around sex
Mixed feelings about high school
Perceptions around Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)
Standardized Testing in the college admissions process
and more….

We will post videos on our blog in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
