Hear From Previous Officers

"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
