Hi, I'm Bethany, I am currently available for freelance work (journalism, illustration, graphic design, creative copywriting, social media content creator, and brand consultation). Open to discussing collaborative funded projects, bringing to the table a unique and gender-sensitive approach to creation. Visit my website to have a tour around my Sassy world. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know other people's realities; visual journalism is the way I describe it. My experience has drawn me to Eastern European and Middle Eastern Underground Culture, Intersectional Female Narratives, and Sexuality within Society. Founder of The Sassy Show - an online platform, creative agency and performative project encouraging progressive, provocative feminism through campaigns and multi-disciplinary storytelling.Locked Pro Plan feature
