Barbara St. Fleur
My name is Barbara St Fleur. I am a global media major with a concentration in multimedia production. I have been the layout editor for the Honor project’s Scholars journal for three years. I am also a student fellow in the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Mentoring. Before the pandemic, I was the Social media Manager for the Black Awareness Society. I have an interest in different subcultures within larger cultures. For the past few years I have focused on identity. I hope to use identity and culture to support free speech and limited censorship. I have started doing so by creating videos, podcasts and articles about expressing different opinions in a positive and respectful way. I love how the media can share what you may feel about something and give you a platform to say your peace.
My thesis is focused on how sex being censored affects the development of young adults. I will be addressing the shame that is put on someone who chooses to express themselves sexually. Young adult are learning less about sex because the information is being limited. I want to focus on this because a lot of people don’t know the basics about sex and health because there is a taboo around talking about sex.
