Congrats to Tia Givens and Deion Burton! Their stories were selected for the Adobe Youth Voices Live! event at the beautiful Alvin Ailey Theater space, along with some of this year’s best youth media from all over New York City. BCAM High School will also be showing work by 11th grade art students, including Kassandra Perez, who will be getting up to represent us on stage. Thanks again to our mentor Hillary Kolos and Adobe Youth Voices for supporting youth media in so many amazing ways!
We left Brooklyn to journey all the way to WNYC’s SoHo studios, where Radio Rookies producers Courtney Stein and Veralyn Williams showed us around, gave us some reporting pointers and helped us lay down some recordings. Thanks Radio Rookies!
