Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power. I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:
The female doesn’t want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and say : “Here is your home country.”

Visitors to Tate Modern can look forward to a new series of specially commissioned Turbine Hall installations funded by a major 11-year partnership between Tate and South Korean automakers Hyundai.
The Hyundai Commission will see a different artwork…
When I say I want to travel I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops. I don’t want to be a tourist. When I say I want to travel I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it. I want to discover small coffee shops in Germany and Italy and France. I want to walk on beaches in Australia and browse the book stores of England. I want to hike the Great Wall of China and go cliff diving in Hawaii I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same. I want to take pictures of things and places and people I meet. I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on earth. I want to see things with new eyes. I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to the things I’ve seen and the people I’ve met. I want to come home and realize that I have not come home whole but have left a piece of my heart in each place I have been. This, I think, is what is at the heart of Adventure and this is why I plan on making my life one.
Kissing is like drinking salted water. You drink, and your thirst increases.
Dropping this Friday on Soundcloud ‘Catch the Throne’ featuring Wale, Big Boy, Daddy Yankee, Common and more.
The mixtape will be cover some themes of the show: kings, queens, dragons, war, and politics. It’s also designed to help catch up people who haven’t read the Game of Throne series (or watched the show) or at the very least, provide new perspective on characters.
Big Boi is a noted fan of the series and TV show and I can’t wait to see the results.
