Mirror & Me focuses on self help and the theme of reflection. Our tabs included pages called pump ups, action, diary, facts and about us. Pump up is a page with affirmations and positive things that could possibly help somebody's day be brighter. Actions is a page that could give you exercises to help you build up your confidence daily or just in your off time. The diary is a place to add responses to a daily prompt and also see other users’ responses. Facts is a page that informs users of the effects of low self esteem.
75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like self harm, bullying, smoking, drinking, or eating disorders. Such problems are can only be helped internally. Improving one's way of thinking can be a solution. With “Mirror and Me”, we hope to aid in solving issues involving self-confidence and loving oneself.
By creating a website that is uplifting women and their confidence: We were able to give affirmations and quotes, gave ways to increase self esteem, and provided a daily diary which prompt for users to reply to by choice. This allows users to reflect on their lives and see that they are not alone in the way they feel. It created an area with facts/statistics to give more information about low self-esteem.
We had trouble with finding up-to-date resources for making a database. The database creation was also a challenge. We needed two databases - one to collect and save users' input on the diary page, and one to display a multitude of user entries on the response page.
