I first got involved in social action through an EmpowHER programme during the lockdown. As a group, we decided to create an Instagram page to inform and educate the public about issue’s affecting the society and topics not taught in school. We took turns in posting feeds and stories every week on Instagram. The best parts of my social action were the weekly sessions we had every Thursday, contributing in the sessions and being given the role to post feeds about the summary of the session we had on Instagram.
This social action helped the environment and other people by learning new information about the different type of sexuality/gender, importance of mental health and educating them about the issues affecting the society.
