Safecity Emerging Leader: Tanushree Pillai
Safecity has provided a platform for women to open a conversation on sexual harassment in public spaces and empowered them to create a dialogue on such a pervasive matter. I was enthralled to receive an internship opportunity with Safecity as I strongly support the cause they are working for and their unique approach to tackle this sensitive issue. As someone who has faced sexual harassment herself, I was thrilled to support this cause in my area of interest- graphics. I have always loved art and working with digital software. I thoroughly enjoyed creating visuals which are essential tools to promote the events and it is crucial that these posters effectively communicate the cause advocated by them as they are the first point of contact between the organisation and the audience.
This internship helped me hone my adobe software skills, understand the process of creating effective compositions, and effectively manage time. Simultaneously, I also gained insight into various relevant topics of social importance such as the Rights of women at a police station. Safecity has instilled a sense of social consciousness and has helped inculcate professionalism in me. Working with Safecity has been a creatively gratifying and enriching experience so far.
