So the world has been really messed up recently and there have been many reports of violation of human rights, terror attacks and torment of the poor. Reading the news just made me more angst everyday because I was stuck in the mind frame that I, a 21 year old, do not have the capacity to help them.
One day, I just did a moment of empowerment and decided that I could help if I want to. So I decided to create Syreina. It is a combination of 2 words- mermaid and majesty. I chose the mermaid because it’s the only human(ish) that can swim through a storm and strong currents, it can breathe in both water and air and it is harmless. I believe that human being’s kindness can brave through anything.
So it’s still a small instagram now but at least it is something. I plan to spread awareness on some issues through art in the instagram and through blogs in this website. As I do this, I will save money gradually to get some water filters to send to villages. I have already started gathering some textbooks that would be sent over to some children who can’t access full education. I managed to get the support of some of my friends which was really encouraging 🙂
Speaking of which, if you do know any way I can reach out to more small sized charities and humanitarian groups, do send me a message on instagram through @syreina
🙂 Have a great day
