Make a Difference Day is the most encompassing national day of helping others, as millions of Americans rally in a single day of action to help change the world. Make a Difference Day will take place at Kent State on Saturday, Oct. 24, 2020, from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
Although it is not possible to hold a traditional in-person event this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and university operations, we wanted to recognize National Depression Screening Day by reminding you about the importance of your mental health and well-being.
A confidential, online mental health screening is available 24-hours a day throughout the year. Upon completion of the screening, participants are provided with feedback, referrals, and resources for mental health treatment if appropriate.
Yayra is a Kent State alumna (2019, BFA Fashion Design) and has been an exuberant client of LaunchNET for over 2 years, having explored multiple venture ideas and placed in the 2018 Idea Olympics as well as earning a Venture Fund award for her herbal tea infusions idea [which was delicious, btw! -tm.].
Her latest project, which is bringing storytelling from Africa and the Diaspora into multimedia formats accessible to people around the world, recently earned a spot as a finalist in the SEA Change social enterprise accelerator and placed with a number of awards. Even after graduating from Kent State, she continues to be involved and in communication with her LaunchNET advisors.
As she works to establish and grow the P.A.L. Project, she took some time to talk to us and share some of her experiences.
