Say Anything is a social enterprise project which aims to empower people who feel overwhelmed with their everyday life by connecting them with trusted community of mobile app users. The app will allow them to find their true voice by practicing expressive writing therapy, accepting their identity and embracing it through inspiring podcast stories. We hope to improve emotional well-being and prevent mental health problems.
It was the first time I pitched and it was very challenging. The challenge was to combine 9 months of hard work, reading thousand of articles, speaking to hundreds of people, acting on my to-do list at 2am on numerous occasions, listening to hours of podcasts and motivational speeches and tons of emotional ups and downs into 5 minutes presentation. Plus, exposing myself and my project for the first time. However, it was so necessary and so rewarding to have a chance to present all of my work, give my project the recognition and test my presentation skills.
It definitely prompted me to prepare more, perhaps practice breathing exercise prior to pitching so that when I am in a stressful situation again, I don't do my usual of talking fast and thinking less!
This money will hopefully allow me to take my project to another level. My plan is to put part of the fund into creating analytical report of my target market and so that I can create a professional presentation for future investors and collaborators. I also aim to reward volunteers who will pilot test my mobile application. As a result, I will be able to officially publish my app on Apple and Google Store.
