Synopsis: Exploring the Opioid Crisis through Art
The Face of Crisis - Writing Sample
This story won an award for feature writing from the California Press Women Association.My favorite experience with C Magazine was examining how different media portrayed America’s opioid crisis: analyzing films, books, and graphic novels. Not only was the story relevant to my high school where drug abuse was rampant and lethal, but the article also featured interviews with professionals on addiction stigma. Through this process, I learned how intertwined art and culture can be, and how each artistic medium — music, television, writing, and the like — should be critiqued within the context of how it impacts the society in which it exists.
