Thank you for that. I've been a freelance journalist for the past couple years…started in my last year of college. My advocacy has also been through writing, activism, training/facilitation, program development, mentorship, and art. I was on the production team to make this video series, Dispelling Beauty Myths: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORHZeaKebKg
A few summers back, I researched and wrote the script for a nationally mandated training program for K-12 educators on identifying and preventing child sexual abuse. Will be looking for a full time job in the US come April so I'll be searching for this sort of healthcare advocacy work in program/policy development.
Two of my articles are awaiting publication in The Guardian and I Weigh, and so I'd love to share those here when they're out. Writing is such a JOY and a craft, but the industry isn't the most stable. Lots of layoffs happening regularly from major outlets, unfortunately :/
Thank you for asking. As you mentioned, I am a 20-something. 24 to be exact. So these past few years have admittedly been very growth-oriented and change-filled. Learning to remain humble while assertive while grateful for this world and committed to its betterment.
