In Fall of 2017, I took up a project with the online anonymous support group, DailyStrength, to introduce a younger demographic to their social media platforms. This project has allowed me to combine both of my passions, photography and mental health, to promote strength, self-love, authenticity, and support. With that said, I have pulled from my undergraduate experience in Psychology and Public Health, as I create captions for the Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and “daily affirmation” posts.
This internship has pushed me to better understand how creative work such as photography and graphic design facilitate the delivery of information with regard to health. My goal has always been to reject the common “health fads” and relay reliable information.
