From Disconnecting to Vlogging

The abandonment of Hinson’s father has left him feeling overwhelmed and emotionally sensitive. His emotional instability and SEN have resulted in an enmeshed relationship with his mother. The support from ChickenSoup has not only restored their mother-son relationship but has also encouraged Hinson to follow his passion for video production.

Father Figures Week: Torres and Hinson

In our “Father Figures Week” campaign, we invited Youtubers Torres and Georgia to give Hinson an office tour! Aspired to become a well-known Youtuber himself, this meet-and-greet was an eye-opening learning experience for Hinson which empowers him to continue to follow his passion!
