About this Project:
My project was originally supposed to be just a chat app but I noticed that that didn’t really help solve my issue so I made finding a safe space the main feature.
My project would’ve worked with google maps and people to read reports and approve or deny places to be safe.

Makes Me Think
Feedback from the Judges:
Anna Phutisatayakul👏 Operations Manager at Pockets Change — Emoti-Con Judge
Pockets Change — Operations Manager
Anna is a lifelong learner who is always thinking of ways to improve processes and systems in her personal and professional life. After earning her B.S. in Neuroscience and Cognitive Behavior from UCSD, Anna went abroad to Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. After working in various conventional schools ranging from private, public, charter, and Montessori, Anna felt that there were other conversations and essential lessons that traditional schools weren’t teaching. As a result, she left the traditional education sector to support Pockets Change, an org that educates underserved populations while resisting cultural and financial oppression.
Types of work that I do
Social Media, Visual Art & Design, Other
I am passionate about doing work that relates to
Community Advocacy, Mental Health, Social Justice
Your presentation clearly reflects your genuine passion and commitment to helping others. The concept of increasing accessibility to safe spaces for the community and those in need resonates deeply with many communities. The chat feature has great potential for fostering a sense of community. I particularly appreciate the inclusion of the "talk to a professional" feature, which can significantly improve access to professional help. I'd love to more exploration on how to prioritize the safety of both parties involved and implement effective matching mechanisms to connect individuals with like-minded individuals.

I love the logo and introduction of this app. A big challenge in design is orienting users, and this does it clearly and visually. It would be great to hear more about why you chose these specific solutions for help and what research inspired you to this solution. Overall, I think you did a great job presenting about an important topic!
