In my last post, I mentioned the launch of my new social initiative, Beading Barriers, an arts empowerment program & sustainable scholarship program for girls’ education. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been prepping my project website to use it as part of my presentation for the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGIU) next week! She’s the First was chosen out of hundreds of organizations and commitments to present our idea on stage, in a session moderated by Chelsea Clinton herself!
Today I’m really excited to announce the LAUNCH of my website and to guide you through some of its interactive features. I will present this website as my final class project. It includes a variety of media, two original videos, and an instructional series — all surrounding the topic of magazine bead jewelry and my journey to CGIU next week.
Visit the website here!
On the HOME page, web users can see photos and read a brief description of the project. They can also follow the page to our Etsy shop (COMING SOON) where they will be able to purchase the magazine bead jewelry once it is completed.
On the ABOUT page, users can find background information about CGIU. This is also where I will post updates throughout and after the conference.
After visiting the HOW-TO page, web users can watch an instructional video which tells them how to make the magazine beads. They can also read the instructions below, should they not want to watch the video.
Watch the instructional video:
The MEDIA page introduces our project with an announcement video as well as a slideshow of photos from our first workshop held a few weeks ago with Girls Group – Ann Arbor.

Finally, the CONTACT page gives a brief bio of myself as the project’s founder as well as provides contact information for individuals who’d like to get involved.
I’ll most likely be adding more information before I turn the project in, so any feedback is welcome! Do you feel like the website is missing crucial information? If so, what?
