National Youth Summit 2012!

I was asked to be a part of the National Youth Summit 2012! It was hosted by the National Action Network led by Reverend Al Sharpton, along with Youth Move. I was a speaker and participant there. It was great being a part of it and met alot of nice people. :) I also met the Vice President of the National Action Network Vizion Jones!

Here are some pictures from the event!
