To raise awareness about women’s heart health for “Wear Red Canada Day” 2023, I designed a poster that was posted around the Queen’s University campus.
The Gairdner Science Week Game
As part of my work with the Gairdner Foundation (as their High School Science Correspondent), I created a game highlighting the work of Gairdner Award Laureates. The game is interactive and includes some fun quizzes!
During another one of my adventures with Figma, I prototyped this app that helps you rent clothing during your travels alongside Caroline Avery Tanto. This was all done in about one night! Ideating the project was done alongside Nandini Kanthi and Fatimah Hussain.
This was my very first experience with Figma and I had to finish it on a 2-day timeline! As part of the contact tracing app adoption project mentioned above where my team and I suggested strategies to increase adoption rates of a digital contact tracing app in Minnesota to 50%, I created this prototype to show how to improve their current app.
As the VP of Communications at Eye Hope Canada — a student-led organization raising awareness about childhood cancers — I created and contributed to many informational and promotional posts. Take a look at a few below!
An Interview with Taline Dorna
To get a personal perspective, I interviewed Taline Dorna, mother of a retinoblastoma survivor, author, and advocate. She shared many important thoughts that you can learn about by clicking below.
This post not only includes important info on what AI could mean for diagnosis and treatment of various cancer types, but also includes a collaboration with an artist (@jchongart) on the comic at the beginning—to make the post more engaging!
For this video, I interviewed Drs. Kathleen J. Millen and Tamra Werbowetski-Ogilvie about their new research that shed light on new ways to treat medulloblastoma — the most common type of pediatric brain tumor.
Each year, the U.S. President addresses the citizens of the U.S. and talks about the state of the union. In this video, I sat down with clinicians and researchers to talk about the state of childhood cancers.
Childhood Cancer Treatments: A Journey Through Time
In this post, some members of the Eye Hope Canada team and I researched and created a post about the history of childhood cancer treatments. We also paid tribute to Dr. Audrey Evans, a pioneering childhood cancer researcher, who passed away in September 2022.
My team (Sofi Sanchez, Sakeenah Ajayi, Klara Zietlow) and I did lots of research from taking a look at studies to reaching out to people living in Minnesota to gain an understanding of how to increase the use of a COVID-19 contact tracing app created by the PathCheck Foundation.
We created a slide deck outlining 3 approaches for how to increase adoption rates of the digital contact tracing app in Minnesota to 50%.
