Szajn – a social and cultural magazine for teenage girls 

“Szajn” was created from the need to create a safe place where adolescent girls can talk about their real dreams, real problems and real challenges. In “Szajn” we think it is worth trying, getting dirty and making mistakes. We are not interested in perfectionism, only in being our true selves. We face the difficult, prepare for high school exams, we make facemasks, we look in the mirror, we talk about sexuality and art.

“Szajn” has the form of a magazine and community, all content is co-created by our readers under the supervision of the editorial team.
