Zara said: “First periods can seem daunting and overwhelming for young people and parents alike, especially when it arrives unexpectedly.

“I wanted to get involved with the #FirstPeriods campaign to open up the conversation and normalise periods to help young people feel more prepared and comfortable when their first period arrives.”
