Ep. 10 What is ASMR and what does it mean to you?

In this episode, Bonita Vista High (BVH) Podcast Manager Nadia Martinez, Features Editor Laurinne Eugenio and Arts and Culture Editor Jaime Jazo talk to ASMRtist Ashley Alfaro also known as “ASMRadiance” on Youtube and junior Michelle Armenta. Alfaro discusses why she began making ASMR for viewers, how she got into listening and why it’s beneficial to listen to. On the other hand, Armenta details her experience listening to the art form from a student’s perspective. Both speakers highlight overcoming their struggles with depression, coping with stress and ultimately,  encouraging others to listen to ASMR. 

Don’t be scared to try out ASMR just because a friend of yours thinks it’s strange or weird… because at the end of the day, this is your life. You only have one life to live so live it the best way that you can. ”
