It Starts With Me        

CONCEPT:  It Starts With Me is a project that comes from the 2012-13 team of high schoolers that I used to teach and work with at PRY SAFE, a Brooklyn-based non-profit focused on youth empowerment and sexual health. In the group they learned HTML, CSS, some Javascript, and general web/media literacy. 

As part of their group project, they decided to make a website to discourage cyber-bullying among teens. Requirements were for the project to feel timely and unique, and the result was It Starts With Me, a website that puts each visitor in the shoe of a teenager experiencing bullying across a number of social media platforms. My role was to create the space for them to learn and to programmatically connect the pages, but the idea, execution, and the HTML and CSS behind the pages, is all theirs.
