How does your media product represent a particular social group?

Women are a social group that I am trying to attract to this magazine. I think that having a woman on the front cover of a Grime magazine is very different but yet influential as generally only male rappers are featured on front covers. I made a point to have my model dress up in a snapback and minimal make up as I wanted her to look like a normal and natural teenager, by doing this I thought that it would make it easier for the readers to relate to her. Also because in the interview she states that she is just a normal teenage girl from South London with a dream. I think that the way that she represents her self will reflect the thoughts of the reader as this magazine is for music enthusiasts that are interested in the reasons behind and the making of good music. Having said that, this is a Grime magazine and the majority of Grime fans are males. So this magazine is targeted toward teenagers as a whole but specifically at women that feel left out in the industry because it is mostly male stream.

I styled my model in a particular way so that she looks laid back and approachable, I want the readers to be able to relate to her, and again, I wanted it to be clear that she is more interested in making music than looking ‘styling’ which is why I dressed her very simple. Teenagers are a broader target audience for this magazine. As well as being very hard working, she is also a fun individual which may appeal to teenagers. I have included a few other male artists in my contents page to hopefully attract young men.

In this interview, Ria is displayed as a good role model to young women of the working class and teenagers. She is shown to be very hard working and passionate about what she does. It’s a positive aspect for teenagers as it shows them that they can actually come from nothing at all and make something of themselves. If someone isn’t academically able they could have other talents, it shouldn't’t always lead to crime. She also acknowledge her luck and gratitude for the fact that she gets to live her dream and be a successful musician, there are all qualities a role model should have.
