“Believe in yourself.”
“It’s okay to be different.”
“If you’re feeling up high and unbalanced, think of groundhogs.”
These are a few of the encouraging messages and words of wisdom callers hear when they dial the PepToc Hotline. It’s part of a public art project created by teachers Jessica Martin and Asherah Weiss with students at West Side School, in Healdsburg, California. Launched in late February, the hotline has quickly become a global sensation.
