Melissa Atkinson
My creativity, particularly my storytelling, is fuelled by social commentaries - using my work to communicate issues I care about such as gender inclusivity. My focus is creating work with a purpose. "Pass It On Zine" was produced from this passion - a collaborative publication that reaches out to various members of the non-binary community, focusing on what inspired and excited them around their presentation journey. The aim was to create an inspiring network to guide their presentation journey, instilling confidence and empowering freedom of expression. All of which actively combats the stereotypes that continue to perpetuate mainstream media and debunks societal misconceptions. I want to continue championing for inclusivity and using my creative storytelling as a method of expressing my support within my desired career in social media, where I can marry my physical and digital creative skills together and explore various creative mediums.
