"As the Public Relations and Marketing Officer, creating graphics that capture the essence of independent and community healing to reach out to folks has been the most meaningful to me. It means selecting a canvas background that is representative of the various places our participants may feel grounded within-- whether that be their home or backyard, the park or a library. It means populating the space with items of comfort-- plants, pets, books, and more. They then combine to create an image that allows for the audience to experience our workshops, without having yet joined or taken part of it, and emphasizes that healing takes place whenever, wherever~"

- Laura, Public Relations and Marketing Officer 2021


"The Thriving Initiative's work is different and impactful because we are a student-led organization. I believe that makes us unique because all of the work that we put together, whether it's our TNJS series, or our Community Cultivations project, those ideas have come alive because of UCSB students and community providers. I think there's so much power in students coming together to create holistic healing practices for others a part of our community to participate in." 

- Victoria, UCSB Vice President of Operations 2021

"I joined The Thriving Initiative because I wanted to find a place where I could support survivors at UCSB and feel like I was really making a difference. During my time, I have been amazed by all of the passionate, intelligent, and caring members of our team who put countless hours into improving the lives of those around them. In my position, I was able to harness my creativity and channel it into our social media, design a paint-by-numbers initiative project, and lead a team of survivors to paint a beautiful mural that is currently displayed in Isla Vista. I feel honored and proud to share the mission of The Thriving Initiative with family and friends and I will never forget my time as a social media officer!”

- Paige, Senior Marketing Officer 2024
