Introducing '6 Feet Apart' — TIEF's first accomplished book project, fostering mental health among youth. Authored by Noah Shapiro and crafted with the collaboration of the 6 Feet Apart Team: Edie Myhre, Cassandra Zart, Samantha Rosser, Asia Rae Smith, Julia Goldstein, Amani Simon and Elif Ak, this book is a beacon of hope and understanding for teens navigating emotional health during challenging times.
'6 Feet Apart' delves into the intricate tapestry of five core emotions experienced during the unprecedented global pandemic. Through heartfelt expressions of anxiety, fear, anger, sadness, and happiness, this book offers a profound insight into the teen psyche, providing solace and understanding.
Thank you for your hard work - expressing your emotions and sharing them, especially in this difficult time during the pandemic of Covid 19. You have done amazing things for your peers and for yourself. Sharing is caring!
Love is not enough.

Our weekly meetings lead to building up a non-judgemental platform, where we were able to relate to one another. Nevertheless, we were able to explore how we are the same and how we differ, from a cultural point of view. Thus bringing our creativity to another level. I am really thankful to have met such open minded and empathic people.
For me personally, the experience of writing these para- graphs was therapeutic and it felt like a great introspection period of time. Reading and catching up with my colleagues really strengthened our bond. Knowing how they perceive certain emotions, finding out about their experiences and acknowledging similarities really managed to get the team together.

Thank you to my Nana. Without my Nana’s help I couldn’t have done this book. She is also an author herself, so she has taught me so much through the process of writing 6 Feet Apart I’m very grateful for that. My Nana would help out when there was a lack of motivation, and she always would demonstrate kindness, no matter the situation or a tough time it would not change who the kind, loving, caring person she is. My Nana was not only a role model when writing this book but a role model in my life.
The Book is available!
