Making your own is one of my larger projects in my self directed module. Throughout my self-directed module, most of my projects have been focused on the topic of homelessness. I have created many projects to raise awareness about the way homeless people live and their daily struggles.

A few weeks ago, I was at the stage where I felt I had done all I could do to raise awareness about homelessness and I wanted to explore my module in a more practical way in order to make a difference to the lives of homeless people. I decided to make a portable bed that was made from cheap recycled material to provide homeless people with a possession that most people take for granted.
