According to the University of California-Berkeley, human beings have the capacity to feel at least 27 emotions and can have more than 400 emotional experiences everyday. Unfortunately, most of us are not taught the basics of Emotional Intelligence, which we define as the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. This is why we’ve started Las Traumadas. We are a not-for-profit project that aims to bring attention to the importance of Emotional Intelligence.
Each zine is individually water-colored and stitched. The content is carefully proofed by our team to bring you the most concrete and credible information in an approachable and relatable read.
