How I’m #startingtheconversation

Greetings Readers!
This is a reminder to those of you who fancy the chance to get involved in a current Goldsmiths Disabled Students Campaign namely the #startingtheconversation campaign.
What is it?
The campaign runs alongside a current project that Thomas Cori, my partner in job share as Disabled Students Officer is running.
It is to raise awakeners of Mental Health and to give people the opportunity to express their views on why we should talk about Mental Health conditions.
My Entry 
My entry is a headshot of me holding a sheet of paper with an image of an open book, the open book has the words ‘We need to share our stories’ written on it and underneath the book the #startingtheconversation is written.
