Posted in this section are sample projects completed during my time at Boston University. Listed below are summaries of each project:
MTV's Shuga analysis:
As part of the Stayin' Alive Campaign, MTV launched the television series "SHUGA" in Kenya to help get young people thinking and talking about issues such as "living with HIV, the importance of knowing your status, and the dangers of free living and irresponsible sex". The series aims to inform and empower young people ot become involved in stemming the epidemic. This series is a result of collaboration between MTV, UNAIDS, UNICEF, and PEPFAR.
Watch all three episodes of SHUGA on: http://mtvshuga.com/clips/shuga-series-2-trailer/
Using concepts learned in social & behavioral sciences, we were asked to analyze SHUGA campaign's objectives and messages.
