LAVA MAE POP-UP CARE VILLAGE: Lava Mae offers 3-star service and hygiene services for the unsheltered in the San Francisco Bay Area. I initiated an art therapy booth and it was a proved to really bring the people together. Now Lava Mae's Pop-Up Care Village in San Francisco and Oakland both offer art to their unsheltered guests.
I crafted travel journals for Lava Mae's guests. The journals were made of gold and silver paper to symbolize the valuable worth in our words and ideas—No matter how silly or strange.

I stay grounded in my beliefs of giving to help the greater good. And design can really bring out the good and even the best in us. Volunteering is a great way to your community grow. And when you see the way art & design makes people happy, it fuels you to do more good.
Goodness makes the world go round...
AIGA SF is a great place for creatives of all backgrounds and experiences to discuss things that matter to us. As a young designer, I AIGA provides a place to learn and grow.
Through volunteering, I have met incredible people in the industry, especially through assisting in Studio Tours, which serve as a fun way of meeting the team and offices of design related companies in San Francisco.
