I began watching SKAM directly after the first few episodes came out. I was pretty young- around eleven or twelve, and the show’s content really resonated with me because the people I’m exposed to aren’t very educated when it comes to the important stuff. There’s a lot of islamophobia, homophobia, sexism, racism, etc. in my school environment and while those don’t really apply to me, I still always knew that the hatred wasn’t okay and to stand up against it. The show prompted me to research about these topics and become more familiar with them. Not to mention the actual acting and writing in the show is just wow. I know it sounds exaggerated but the show has really changed my life and the way I go about my days. The lessons in SKAM are the reason why it is now my favorite show to ever have existed.
