Clean & Clear® began their local #SeeTheRealMe campaign last year to address social challenges particularly plaguing female youth today, elevating real, empowering stories directly from talented, courageous local girls.
“Our 2016 iteration of #SeeTheRealMe is an evolution of what we brought to girls across the region last year: content that inspires them to share who they really are with their family, their friends, and the world, at a time and place in their lives where that can be very scary,” said Brenna Deck, Assistant Brand Manager, Clean & Clear® MENAP.
“But this time, with the star power of our new partners The5, the stakes are higher and the rewards much greater for girls who rise to our challenge and demonstrate this courage. We’re not just celebrating these girls by giving them an anthem—we’re giving them the opportunity to write their own anthem.”
The5, the Pan-Arab boy band sensation including members Ahmed Hassan (Egypt),
Adel Echbiy (Morocco), Kazem Chamas (Lebanon), and Said Karmouz and Mohamed
