Puzzles to Remember
As the Executive Director of PuzzlesToRemember, I was invited to participate in the Pepsi Refresh Seminar, held Saturday, April 17, at the New York Public Library. The seminar was sponsored by Pepsi and by DoSomething.org.
At the seminar, I had a chance to meet many other young people who truly believe in the importance of community service. I also had a chance to meet Fonzworth Bentley, who presented me with a copy of his new book, "Advance Your Swagger."
I was also presented, by Coltrane Curtis, with a special award for my work on PuzzlesToRemember, and I had the opportunity to hear Common perform.
The focus of the seminar was to teach young people how to go about getting support for their community service projects. It was a very informative and enjoyable day.
