RSVP to Laura Henri at laura.henri3@gmail.com


Monica Kolf earned her bachelor's in Philosophy from the University of Notre Dame
 and her master's in Education from the University of Pittsburgh. 
She has over 10 years' experience teaching and  mentoring teens, particularly teen girls. 
While teaching, she became concerned about both the quantity and the quality
 of the media her students were consuming each day and, in response, founded SHADES Media Literacy Project.

 SHADES's mission is to guide young women to a deeper self-understanding, particularly with regard to the way 
social media can change human interaction, as well as the way that sounds, images, and ideas
 in entertainment media can change our perspective of the world.
