This new Instagram Feature is Just For You! ❤️

Instagram’s new series highlights underrepresented young people, which many times includes black people. 🙆🏽🚶🏾 ⛹🏾

On social media, we tend to display our highlight reels, often failing to capture the trials and tribulations of backstage real life. Instagram is aiming to change that with a new series called #GoingThroughIt, where each day this week on their account, they’ll be featuring a new inspiring millennial who advocates for social justice, equality, and underrepresented communities.

According to Instagram,

Teens on Instagram have truly embraced our platform as a way to share their authentic selves in a safe and comfortable space. The #GoingThroughIt series, which highlights a selection of teens who have dealt with hardships and how they are managing through it, encourages the community to rally together and uplift underrepresented causes.
