Sunset: Pandemic's Emotional Impact on Essential Workers

Abstract or project description

Sofia has decided on making a zine on the experiences of front line workers during the pandemic. Specifically, she will use empirical interviews, illustrations, and data visualizations throughout her zine, in order to express her points to readers. This format will be specifically accessible to students Sofia’s age, who are the target group for disseminating this project. Sections will include contents, historical background and research, mini profiles based on her interviews with 5 front line workers, and steps to take action. Her hope is that this zine will allow young people to understand this issue further and take action using a deeply engaging and accessible medium.
