This is a sexual self-efficacy learning app designed for female African American adolescents who live in foster care. We designed a culturally sensitive mHealth app to provide culturally sensitive, relevant sexuality knowledge for African American female adolescents in foster care. We build typical personas to highlight the different user’s needs. And then work on the brand design and asset design to build a prototype. For certain culturally sensitive content, we create an African American female adolescent character Lela to lead the targeted user to learn, play and answer their questions. We also make educational animation movies and games to facilitate learning and improve/smooth communication.
