This study investigates whether and how young high school students from North Zealand experience, and are influenced by social relations, in their presentation of themselves. This paper is based on four interviews with different high school students, and thereby uses a qualitative method. The four interviews are analyzed through theory by Erving Goffman, who among other things focuses on social interaction and the social construction of self. Along with the theory by Erving Goffman, and a definition of a youth concept, composed by Danish youth researchers, this study concludes that the students are influenced by their social relationships to others. It concludes that the informants are influenced differently; some students experience a higher level of influence than others. Furthermore this paper discusses whether a different use of methodology would have caused another result. The study works through symbolic interactionism, which focuses on creating a meaning in a given context and every context will therefore lead to different answers.
