We Have a New Look
A special thank you to Belle Espinal and Joanna Smith.
Joanna designed our new logo. She is a graphic designer, illustrator, and educator. While working as a freelance graphic designer, Joanna also enjoys designing for socially conscious projects and charitable organizations. She is currently a member of the faculty at Sessions College for Professional Design. She volunteered to help us design the logo through VolunteerMatch.org
Belle completely redid our website
. This January Belle spent her internship from Oberlin College, dedicating her time with Healing Voices-Personal Stories to remaking our website and integrating our new look throughout our Social Media. She came to Healing Voices-Personal Stories because of her interest in femininity, sexuality and gender roles. She was thrilled to have the opportunity to research website making skills and implement them with a cause she believes in. Belle also helped us on the set filming our third film "Jessica's Story" and taking photographs which are being used in "Cheyanne's Story."
We are very appreciative of Belle and Joanna's volunteer efforts for Healing Voices. If you have a talent you would like to share with us please email JoAnne
"Cheyanne's Story" is in the final stage of editing. Next newsletter we'll be sending a link so you can all view it.
We'll begin working on editing "Jessica's Story" within the next few weeks. FIimming went wonderfully with Jessica, who shared her story in a beautiful way.
We are working on distribution of "Peggy's Story".
