Strategized and managed social media accounts for Felicia Singh, candidate and later Democratic nominee for NYC Council in Queens, NY. I wrote copy, created graphics and videos, coordinated photo coverage with staff and volunteers, and worked with volunteers to actively organize on social media.

Social strategy aimed to tell the story of the candidate, build trust with candidate and platform, create community connection to the campaign, activate volunteers and voters, and share and create press.  Facebook events were created for field events to expand reach.

Ran an impactful and successful digital ad program throughout the primary and general election. Team Felicia doubled the electorate in the primary election.
