Instagram is doing this campaign so that woman can use it as a platform to tell their story about their lives and personal beliefs. Rowan got involved because she wanted to speak to young woman, and especially younger teenagers who are her age.  We couldn’t be more proud of you, Rowan. You are such an amazing role model to young kids out there who look up to you. Here are a few quotes from her interview with Teen Vogue.

Rowan on why she got involved in this project:

I realized that a lot of teens are told that they aren’t educated enough to have their own beliefs and they don’t know what they’re talking about and stuff like that. I kind of realized that Instagram reaches a ton of teens and the people who follow me are mostly young people. And by posting what I believed in a certain way, like the essay I wrote on intersectional feminism and stuff like that, it kind of opens a door for other kids my age who otherwise wouldn’t have a place to say their beliefs. I’ll get tons of comments from kids that are like, ‘I grew up in a household where my beliefs really don’t matter, but I can go on Instagram and post them and people will acknowledge it.’ It’s cool that Instagram has become this place that you can say what you feel without being judged for it.

How she wants to get her fans involved:

The campaign is kind of describing how you can use Instagram to tell your story, and I think that’s important for all women, but especially young women and teens my age. I feel like we live in a world where a lot of teens are expected to be quiet and silent and not be educated about certain topics, so I think the campaign is saying, we’re young women and we have stories too that need to be recognized and need to be heard. Because often in film and TV there’s one version of what it is to be a woman and it’s the same thing every time. So it’s cool that Instagram is recognizing a different story for each woman.

On how she wants to get her fans involved:

I’m really excited to see what other teens my age are going to post, especially ones who live in different countries. It’s cool that the #MyStory campaign unites all of us under the same hashtag and we’re able to relate to each other and see our differences and see how we can help each other. It’s a nice collaborative thing that I think brings a lot of people together. Something that I’ve kind of discovered through Instagram is how I can portray my story and how I can use my story to help other people and I think that’s a really great thing that everyone can do is recognize how they can help others by telling their story.

What she hopes to see from those who tell their story:

I’m really excited to see what other teens my age are going to post, especially ones who live in different countries. It’s cool that the #MyStory campaign unites all of us under the same hashtag and we’re able to relate to each other and see our differences and see how we can help each other. It’s a nice collaborative thing that I think brings a lot of people together. Something that I’ve kind of discovered through Instagram is how I can portray my story and how I can use my story to help other people and I think that’s a really great thing that everyone can do is recognize how they can help others by telling their story.
