  2. I had the opportunity to meet bestselling author and Green For All Co-Founder Van Jones. Hear what he has to say about the most pertinent issue we need to tackle in this new year, and what the media's role should be.

    Thanks to Northwestern SEED for organizing the event and inviting Van Jones to speak. It was incredibly inspiring and enjoyable.

  3. Video game designer Susana Ruiz really caught my attention when I listened to her speak at the 3G (Girls, Games and Gender) Summit at Columbia College. As one of the founders of Take Action Games, her passion for using gaming as a tool for positive social change was evident. I knew she was perfect for Media Impact Spotlight, and was glad that she very kindly agreed to chat with me after the event! :)
