Beautiful Social Update

We have created an email account and emailed the contact person for Urban Nutrition Initiative, but no one has responded to our email.

We began to analyze the social media they already use, and they have a website, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, blog, YouTube channel and Picasa account.

It’s great that they have all of these social media outlets, however they are not utilizing them to the extent that they should be.  Also it is confusing that they have more than one blog site, when they should just have one.

Beautiful Social: Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative

My group and I were able have our first choice for our Beautiful Social project which is the Urban Nutrition Initiative or UNI.

“The Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative (UNI) is a program of University of Pennsylvania’s Netter Center for Community Partnerships to address issues of poor nutrition and physical fitness in West Philadelphia. UNI’s activities are fully integrated into the university-assisted community school model. UNI organizes school day, after school and summer learning opportunities for more than 10,000 students and their families at 20 public schools in Philadelphia. UNI’s ecological approach to nutrition education includes hands-on experiences for students to grow, cook, consume and sell healthy foods. UNI has in-school“Eat Right Now” programs and “UNI Youth Development” programs.”

We’re really excited to help UNI increase their social media presence because we think they have a great program and goal.  We also think that social media is a fantastic outlet for UNI since their target audience is teens.

PSA Video Reflection

Because of this video experience in this class..

  • I’ve gotten better at editing footage with iMovie
  • I’m more aware of camera angles and how they can enhance the feel of a video
  • I’ve realized how hard it can be to coordinate group meetings around everyone’s schedule, and make sure everyone is on the same page
