Santa Barbara Speaks
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit aimed at creating a space for local youth voices.
Create a space for students to present their ideas, experiences, and work.
In 2016, a friend and I launched TEDxYouth@TheFunkZone, Santa Barbara's first youth-oriented TEDx event. We then launched a nonprofit organization around producing these types of events, ranging from conferences to poetry slams to art shows. I did design for each of the events, along with creating a website, logo, and other materials. The organization is now run by high school students at my alma mater.
