Shine ALOUD Magazine is a project created and run by Shine ALOUD, a social enterprise on the arc programme.
The magazine educates and informs young people about sexual health and relationships on a peer-to-peer level, in addition to giving young people the chance to voice their opinions on how to improve sexual awareness in the borough. It also covers music, art, fashion and lifestyle.
The February edition of the online magazine is their Wonder Woman issue, focussed on raising aspirations and empowering young women within the realms of sex, relationships and youth culture, as well as highlighting some customs and practices that cause damage and put women’s health at risk.

In it, Rianna gives her reasons for starting Shine ALOUD, an insight into the issues face by social entrepreneurs and what she hopes the future will be for the project. Read the full article here.
