World making (or worldbuilding) is a practice that gives you the freedom to imagine unlimited possibilities, alternate realities and histories, and worlds. But it’s not just about the imagination, in fact, it’s a foundational skill that can be applied to many aspects of your life: school, work, family, and more. Join Drs. Olivia Quintanilla and Jeanelle Horcasitas to explore how you can use world making for yourself.
