In an era where social media is on the forefront of everyone’s minds, Sage is as obsessed with the online world as most teens her age. But what happens when it all goes away?
This video shares some of the stories that students from our school submitted anonymously about their personal experiences with bullying, discrimination and/or exclusion.
Creating the last two videos of Unheard Voices has allowed me to try and put myself into someone else’s shoes, someone who is going through more than any of us know. In all honesty, trying to imagine what they’re going through and trying to find a way to visually express has been quite difficult, but it has also been such an interesting experience for me.
I got the opportunity to create this video alongside some of the Student Council members at my school. They proposed the idea to me and I was so excited to be able to bring it to life. Unheard Voices shares some of the stories that students from our school submitted anonymously about their personal experiences with bullying, discrimination and/or exclusion. Our goal with this was to make their unheard voice heard and bring their stories to light. We want people to be able to express how they feel, and not feel any negative judgement. We hope to bring people together by building bridges between them, and fostering empathy.
