Puzzles to Remember
I had an incredible time this weekend in New York City. I was invited to a banquet sponsored by Hasbro Corporation, the Points of Light Institute, and Generation On. I was presented an award as a Hasbro Community Action Hero.
My work was described and my award presented by Sigourney Weaver.
I had the opportunity to spend time with Cory Booker (the Mayor of Newark) and Spike Lee.
I also had the opportunity to meet 5 other people who were receiving awards for their community service. I hope we can work together with these organizations to encourage other youths to give back to society.
