In my role as the Design Lead for Playful Learning at the University of St. Thomas, I had the opportunity to collaborate with the renowned photographer Angelica Dass on our project called Humanae. Our primary objective was to develop an educational curriculum to complement Dass' children's book "The Colors We Share," which challenged young readers to question their perceptions of race and the limited language we use to describe our skin. As an adoptee and a member of the BIPOC community, I felt a deep personal connection to the project's message and purpose.
Serving as the Videographer, I worked closely with the education and creative teams to establish lesson guidelines, design and construct the filming set, oversee a team of three videographers, and utilize Adobe Premiere Pro to edit and finalize 6 impactful video lessons.
