Recently, I had been looking for a way to express my feelings of anger and hope because of our President Elect. I think we can agree that now, more than ever, we need people to continue being creative and using their voices for good.
That’s why I started my zines. My zines are two different concepts, both surrounding the voices of young people. The Year of the Feminist is a zine I originally started because I thought some feminist issues are not taught about in school or otherwise. These issues were important to me, so I started thinking about a way to put them out there, and a zine just seemed perfect! I was thinking that if it’s a sort of informational thing about Planned Parenthood or mental illness, it would be easy to hand out.
Latte Foam, my other zine is focused on the artsy side of activism, involving more poetry and visual art. I thought that encouraging people to use their art as their voice is important. Currently, there have been no submissions from others to Latte Foam, so please let me know if you’re interested! Also let me know if you want a copy of the zine!
