I love sharing my passion with others and find public speaking invigorating and enriching.
Understanding the Intersectionality of Women and Disabilities
I led a bi-monthly meeting for Democrats Abroad United Kingdom’s Women’s Caucus. This consisted of running a workshop simulating sensory overload, giving a talk on how the socio-economic impact of disabilities disproportionately effect women, and moderating a “between two virtual ferns” interview with a woman of colour who lives with a disability.
Games and Brains: The Relationship Between Videogames and Mental Health
I was the keynote speaker for Brooklyn Gamery’s Brain Jam, a game jam with a focus on mental health. I also contributed to Thanks for Being a Friend. Our goal was to show players how social media can be used to support your friends whether it be through direct statements or support or finding things to laugh about.
Brains and Games: How to Incorporate Mental Health and Human Experience into Your Games
