Marie Copsey

Media and Communication - BA (Hons)

I am a passionate individual who likes to create images, audio, posters, and videos that are important to me. In my degree, it has helped me develop my video editing skills to express how I feel in a creative manner. I love filming and expressing my passion for subjects, and I feel strongly about raising awareness.

I want to make a positive change in society, to make it a happier but open mind space for people to be able to talk about the issues like mental health, disabilities, and social change.

My work explores the impacts of social media on mental health and the short and long term effects on wellbeing. My project has case studies from theorists and other people who have spoken out about the struggles they face. All of my work has been done with compassion and empathy, looking at emotions of experiences via social media, especially in Generation Z (individuals born between 1996 and 2013).
