Based on secondary research, survey results and participant observation, we determined the need for this student affiliate of the Be the Match National Foundation to increase its visibility among 800 other campus groups and encourage students to sign up for the National Bone Marrow registry. We recommended tactics including bone marrow typing drives with Hispanic and Asian student groups, hosting a film/Q&A event, improving social media posting, following, and sharing, garnering news coverage of events, crafting elevator speeches for volunteers, and unveiling #SwabRight on social media to increase name/purpose recognition and provide a fun and engaging way to interact with students.
The campaign received an Honorable Mention on the NC PRSSA Inspire Awards.

We pitched the idea in front of a panel of marketing specialists.
During five weeks at the Center for Conflict Resolution in Uganda I re-designed their website to improve user experience and availability of information.

Moreover I produced an institutional video and several testimonial videos to showcase the work they were doing.
