S3E2_Surf Rock Artist & Mental Health Advocate - Dylan Garcia
Musician Dylan Garcia released his new single "Summer Luv" on Friday, July 31st. The single falls on the surf rock genre, with an original sound. Garcia started his artistic journey by writing poetry at age 12. While in high school, his friends were in rock bands. They were doing what he really wanted to do: play music. However, he was pushed into playing baseball and football. He soon began body boarding. Little did he know surfing culture was going to be a major influence in his music career. By the age of 19, he purchased his first guitar while at the University. Songwriting came organically as the next step. Additionally, Dylan wants to give a voice to Mental Health awareness and help erase the stigma associated with it.
S3E1_Docu-series "The Shift" - Mary Albertoli (Creator) & Nhandi Craig (Ambassador)
" There's so much stigma around mental health, but the truth is not one of us is alone in struggling with something" said Albertoli. She started developing the idea for a docu-series called The Shift in the Spring of 2018 after being deeply affected by a headline about a 9-year-old girl's suicide. " I thought enough is enough. When did suicide become an option for young people?" She knew this was primarily due to a lack of dialogue about mental health. Young people were failing to bring language to their emotions and traumatic experiences and were often left to deal with haunting mental health issues alone.
