I have been experimenting with different visuals to use as TMI’s icon. I am thinking about making it a hashtag or a possible red drop. I need to ideate some more until I find something that is powerful enough, but not too obvious. I want it to be something that people look at and are inspired by or become curious about. I want for girls/women to be posting about their periods, the struggles, the body positivity, how they are feeling that week. Maybe girls can even post on their stories about tips to help other girls! …

I wrote myself a list this week consisting of the different possible directions I could take this project such as the way it was presented, should I approach it more in a serious way or a somewhat playful way so I don’t scare away my audience? DJ and I also experiment with the concept of an interactive experience to create word of mouth, to make it something girls can participate in.

I’ve found some great girly color palettes that I will be experimenting with within my illustrations for my social media posts and I want to possibly make a specified…

The main problem I would like to solve with this project is the discomfort girls feel when it comes to periods. The way society makes girls feel like they can’t talk about it or can’t even walk around comfortably holding a tampon. I want to create a normalization of girls being able to talk about it freely, for girls to feel empowered and to normalize the concept that periods are NORMAL!

I know there is a question of “with whom” the girls are normalizing periods and I think that answer is with themselves and other girls; girls supporting girls! Although educating men is vital, I think the importance of girls feeling good about themselves and gaining confidence starting at a young age can create a stronger, more powerful women! Creating empowered, educated generations of girls, is my goal.

When it comes to figuring out the mindset of a young girl starting puberty and getting her period, the best method is talking to that actual age group. For my research I plan on interviewing my specific audience of girls ages 11–17, interviewing my gynecologist, researching studies from doctors who have found the best way to approach teaching young girls on periods, and surveying women of different ages.

When it comes to interviewing young girls, I plan on asking questions such as: What do you know about periods? Who taught you about periods? Do you feel educated enough on the…

I picture my booth will pull many different kinds of people in. I imagine it to be mostly graphic illustration that may make a lot of people uncomfortable, but that’s the point. I would like to pull people in out of intruige and to hopefully educate those at my booth. Normalizing periods starts with this booth and creating a comfortable space for people to come up and read about the many facts or tips that they may have never encountered before. I hope to inspire women to feel empowered and proud of their monthly “gift,” I hope to intrigue the…

In order to get into the mindset of a young girl or boy you need to speak to them! You can read as many articles as you want, but kids from the ages of 10–17 are constantly evolving depending on their surroundings and what they have access to. I’m sure they are even more experienced now-a-days than I was at that age. Everybody grows up different of course, I was pretty sheltered as it took a while for my mom to give me the “talk” because I wasn’t ready (or maybe she wasn’t). I have surrounded myself with kids who…

I have decided to discuss the topic that everybody likes to avoid. Periods. I think its crazy that girls deal with this every month, yet the concept is still not normalized. Men of all ages feel uncomfortable about the topic and won’t even allow girls to talk about it in front of them, as if we have a choice wether or not this is happening to us.

With that being said, this has also caused a downhill affect where girls don’t feel good about themselves from the judgement. I would love to create an empowering space for young girls, to…

When looking at my current capstone project, I have layed out a big plan for myself. So far my project type consists of branding and packaging for the tampon line, creating a small bag for young girls to put their tampons in for transportation to the bathroom and two small zines: one is for the girls to educate them on puberty and periods while the other is for the boys/men in the girls life to educate them on how to respectfully handle the situation appropriately and to best inform them on how the girls body is changing.

Looking at this…

Growing up I always wanted to become a professional dancer. Moving to NYC, become a Radio City Rockette and just dance until my body couldn’t take it on anymore.I would then become a dance teacher and maybe even open up my own studio to continue sharing what I loved with other kids and hopefully inspire them the way I had been.

Once I got into high school the dream started setting in and I realized college would probably be the best for me, realistically, while the concept of a dance studio would always still be there once I graduated from…

I have been dancing since the age of 2 years old. It’s always been in my blood and my deepest passion. It’s the one thing I never got bored of; I always wanted to be at the studio! As I got older, I had the opportunity to teach classes alongside being a student and that was the greatest experience. Gaining the opportunity to show young kids what I had loved so much for so long of my life, getting to see the happiness in their little faces as they danced around the room. With dance being such a large aspect…
