COMMUNITY: Breakfast for Champions Creative Workshop

I walked the students through a mind-mapping exercise designed to emphasize the need and value of diversifying their skill sets to be "multi-hyphenated" professionals by integrating their passions and hobbies into their career development.Following my workshop, I was joined by founder + creative director, @the_nichols of the @palettegrp where he taught the students how to position advertisements products. Students got 30-minutes to produce a TikTok ad for a product of their choice.
