11% of the births worldwide come from a teen mother. 31 000 children have a baby every year in Canada. Nearly 820, 000 teens are pregnant each year in USA. More than 16 million teen girls become pregnant each year in the world.
MISHKA tells the story of a conflicted 13-year-old and her grim secrets. In the face of an unsettling reality, Mishka makes an alarming decision in a desperate attempt to revert her childhood self.
Using again similar themes from my first short film “The Silence”, MISHKA portrays with disarming honesty the reality of millions of girls in this world.
Starring Matia Jackett, Ray Galletti, Devyn Nekoda, Kiki Hammill, Nicolas Ballarini, Alexandra Bacci & Katie Uhlmann. Directed and written by Cleo Tellier.

Terrific girl. Hope she has a great career. As for the dad (the character) - he should undergo a punishment taken from the legal canons of early 14th century France. It’s too horrific to describe here.
Teachers should really be showing THESE videos in school,
instead of pushing abstinence. People are kept in the dark. People do stuff. People are ashamed. SH*T happens. And people are kept in the dark... At least, these
videos shed a little light onto relationships and, unfortuanely, how unhealthy
they are. Thanks again! Keep
Thoughts while watching the short film: A short, spoiler-free list.
Oh honey, you're so young, what's wrong :( (first few minutes)
OH my word, she needs a hug (finding out that she's pregnant)
Wait wait wait, SHE'S THIRTEEN?! (at friend's birthday party)
Ladies, use protection if you're going to be sexually active (throughout the entire thing)
WAIT WHAT NONONONONONONONO (the ending)
Overall, really well produced and had me on the edge of my seat
Others: BAD stuff, drugs, alcohol, teen pregnancy, parties and like boys/girls

WELP HAVE FUN OTHERS IN EATING PRINGLES IN MY PJ’S WATCHING RIVERDALE CRYING AND PLAYING ROBLOXS
I am confused on many things:
1. Did she agree to have a child
2. Did she get an abortion (why did it say she “killed it)
3. Why would she keep the pregnancy thing in her pencil case
4. Why on earth would you think of taking a pregnancy test in a school bathroom
5. I thought you don’t have periods while you are pregnant
6. Was she even pregnant???????
I have no common sense and I don’t understand this what so ever.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
