The past couple of weeks have flown by, and our Young Ambassadors are consuming lots of valuable information that can be used today, as well as for their fall projects and for the future.
Young Ambassador, Hassani Cannon (Artist, Chicago) shared his Midyear Showcase experience with us – “It helped me give a prototype into how to give a presentation and get people excited about a project that you have.” (time stamp 00:22:56 – 00:24:18)[passcode – Y9ji&J0E]
