Create Happy Media - Aotearoa's by teens for teens media source!

Welcome to Create Happy Media, a media outlet created by teens, for teens. Currently, Create Happy Magazine & Create Happy Podcast are the core sources of the youth media, but CHM is expected to expand into more over the coming year.


Grit Edition

Create Happy Magazine:
Our magazine is a wellbeing, creativity, and youth issues online magazine written by teens for teens. We have 15 writers, poets, photographers and artists who run and create the magazine, along with mentor Mandi Lynn. Our magazine is all-inclusive, made for teens of any gender who are interested in photography and mindfulness & wellness.

The magazine is currently running with 15 under 18 year olds who have been working together since March 2022. All passionate in journalism, art or photography, the diverse crew each take on different roles within the magazine, including Chief Editor (Lola Fisher), Assistant Editors (Holly Davies & Sydney Fremista), Graphic Designers (Lola Fisher, Lindsey Song, Audrey Goh), and more. Each magazine is quarterly, and is accompanied by podcast episodes.


Create Happy Podcast - RELEASING 25TH JANUARY 

Create Happy Podcast is the newest addition to Create Happy Media. The podcast’s concept is to continue the conversations discussed in our articles in the magazine. We want to provide different media source for those who may not enjoy magazines or like to listen to content rather than read. There are 24+ podcast episodes per year (six or more per quarter), and you can find the episodes on Spotify.
