’Happy Bleeding: A study on menstruation products’ is a documentary and Web site project that reviews all tampons, pads, and other alternative methods for periods. Each product marketed towards female-bodied people will be reviewed and studied to determine if it is really safe for usage. The ingredients, along with descriptions, will be explained in the documentary as well as on the Web site. The outcome of the documentary is to conclude which feminine hygiene products are unsafe to use, what are the alternatives, and how companies should change the way they make their products.

“Hi, I’m Laura. How do you like me so far?” is a three-act play about my how my birth was an automatic controversy in my family and how that shaped my adolescent, teenage, and adult life. I wrote it the show as a response to my family’s lack of support surrounding my college education and open decision to not get married. As a member of a devout Italian-Catholic family, my beliefs are not fully appreciated. This show was my response to the invisibility I’ve experienced growing-up.
