Web design and making infographics have always been very enticing for me as a creative outlet. One issue that I’m incredibly passionate about has always been mental health awareness, and I’ve carried over my interest in my attention to social justice works and throughout my high school career. I was inspired to develop “deconstructed.” to showcase my personal experience with mental illness in my family and in my own life. Through resources catering to people of color, immigrants and individuals of varying identities, I aimed to provide for all. Moreover, I’m able to demonstrate my appreciation for subjective and informative art. In order to make this happen, I utilized Canva, Wix, Social Media and what I learned during my mentor/mentee meetings and Girls Write Now workshops to put together a one-stop mental health awareness shop!
