Emojis are more than just whimsical social media icons.

Summer campers at INMED’s Family & Youth Opportunity Center are using super-sized emojis to help them learn how to express their emotions in constructive ways—even at the earliest ages. Fun with emojis is just one activity of the self-esteem course developed and led by INMED’s intern Rita Kailani.
