About me
Hi, I'm Bethany, Visit my Bx Sassy website to have a tour around my 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. 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. Founder of The Sassy Show - an online platform, creative agency and performative project encouraging progressive, provocative feminism through campaigns and multi-disciplinary storytelling.

Over the course of 5 hours, Albertine discussed her career, her upbringing and how grief has shaped the empathetic person she is today. Read the full interview on thesassyshow.com

  • When Tunisian Traditions Meets Electronic Dance Music - The Sound of Nuri
    When Tunisian Traditions Meets Electronic Dance Music - The Sound of NuriNuri’s music can be best described as a mix of bass, beats and dirty old sounds layered between samples of Afro and Global melodies; a combination which, with an upbeat electronic foundation, results in tracks that implore you to start dancing. Heavily inspired by his Northern African heritage, I interviewed Nuri focusing on the ways he wishes to preserve traditions through his contemporary production of older sounds.
