The Only difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is the Press Coverage
Intro: right before this project my cousin recently committed suicide, this project surrounds my personal experience with suicide. I expressed it through an abstract art piece, a personal essay, and I also created an a twitter account to bring awareness to veteran suicide.
Here is my video for how I created my abstract art piece.
For my personal english essay I wrote about what my cousins life would have been if she would have lived and how she would have lived out her life. I first started out with her 18th birthday and how we would have celebrated. I moved into what her life would have been if she went to culinary school. Then I moved into the wedding and what that would have been like. I then went back to say that my none of this actually happened and how my cousin passed away.
For my twitter account I focused on veterans an how suicide impacted them. You can find my tweets on @apollo_madi. Along with these tweets I did research to go along with the tweets.
