Experience

Jennifer Stavros is a freelance culture writer who seeks stories that give folks an opportunity to engage with content that reaches the social core and all of the nuances in between. Jennifer's curiosity and compassion for folks is one that is always seeking to bring awareness and sometimes innovative ways to connect with the world around us. She loves to keep an active lifestyle both mentally and physically.

As a creative, Jennifer is always seeking stories that make people think about interacting with their world differently. During the pandemic, this was amplified even more. Upon learning about how masks were making communication difficult for folks within the deaf community, she wrote a featured discussion about it for Cosmopolitan to build awareness.

Jennifer has also been led to write and be written about for her observations of the power of tech for social good. When Jennifer couldn't personally join protestors outside for the Black Lives Matter movement she turned to technology to protest. A digital protest she held in the video game Animal Crossing was discovered by someone who attended one of her protests. Jennifer wrote a story about attending the other digital protest for Business Insider. After the piece went live she was approached by a writer from National Geographic Magazine who featured Jennifer in a story. Later on, Jennifer also wrote a story for Wired about how folks were using video games to process death during the pandemic.

She is currently working on a balance of lighter lifestyle-style content pieces and social awareness pieces, and is working on a book exploring the intersection of death and poverty.
