Noise pollution is the propagation of noise that has a harmful impact on both urban centers and wildlife alike; it is primarily caused by transportation systems and industrial zones. #SayNope is a campaign inspired by the #MeToo movement and its ability to use social media and the power of communication to create positive change. Our goal was to gather all the information we could on the harmful effects of noise pollution and to bring awareness to an issue that is very much present and relevant— yet virtually unnoticed. Ironically, noise pollution is the pollution you that never hear about.

Eating breakfast has always been an important part of a person’s daily life. Or, at least, it should be. Sadly, not everyone in the world understands how important it is to start the morning off right with a nutritious breakfast. Skipping this meal can negatively effect a person’s health in many ways, including lead a person to gain unnecessary weight. It should not go on being ignored when it is the meal that can help you focus for the rest of the day and keep up your health. To shine some light on this problem, I have chosen to cover it in my Project Truth infographic in hopes of changing people’s thoughts about skipping breakfast in the morning.

I chose to do my infographic on weave because often times there are misconceptions about weave. In this day and age weave is so popular and common, but people still don’t know how big the Weave industry truly is. I created this to shed light on a topic that is usually not always talked about. I also wanted to find a way to break the stereotype that only black women wear weave.
I decided to do my infographic on how birds have been affected by climate changes and how it disrupts their migration. I raise awareness to the birds that are now endangered due to climate change in order to promote a healthy Earth! The climate operates the flight plans of bird migration around the world. Drastic changes in the climate disrupt migration, and if the bird does not leave its territory before deep freeze hits, they end up not making it through the winter.

It’s no secret that racism is a prevailing problem in America. It’s not something that happened overnight it’s a deep-rooted issue. It affects a lot of things, but one of the big things in today’s society would be police brutality. How would you feel knowing you’re more likely to be killed or even harmed by police simply for the color of your skin? I in no way intend to bash police because I know for a FACT that it’s not all police, heck my mom is a detective so I have a lot of internal insight of the workings of a police force. Again this is not intended to bash, I simply want to shed light on facts. People deserve to know the truth about what’s going on.
