Thick's Things

About Me

"Hello, it's your girl this is Thick and welcome to my page!"

I attained my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in December 2017, and since then I have moved on to the Master of Social Work Program at UNLV. I just recently attained my Master's in Social Work and my Social Work License. I am currently working within the school district as a school social worker. I hope to go on and attain my clinical license to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. 

In my corner, you will find information on multiple heavy subjects like community organizing, non-profit resources, politics, and policy.

Independent Content Creators

Who Thick Follows

Youtube is my TV by now

I will provide the links to common channels that I follow for news, discussions, and other information. I don't take anything that these commentators say as gospel, but I do like that they provide links to their sources and background information on the topics that they are discussing. It helps me get a broader view of a subject, I am always on the lookout for different content creators and those that are not necessarily mainstream.

I read many different articles and I love Documentaries as well, so I will always be on the lookout for the newest content.

Miss Representation (2011)

Writer/Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom interwove stories from teenage girls with provocative interviews from the likes of Dr. Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Dr. Jackson Katz, Dr. Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem to give us an inside look at the media and its message. As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that a woman's primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality--and not in her capacity as a leader, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and asks the question, "What can we do?
