Repost from our founder: Consultations with emerging creative entreprenuers, ages 9-15, of MAKESHOP this week keeping life meaningful. No matter where the world is taking me, West Virginia is #1 in my heart, and video technology is an amazing tool. Xavier, age 10, bottom left, said the number one question he wants to address in his neighborhood on the west side of Charleston is, why do we have so many abandoned houses just fallin apart, and so many people livin on the street without homes? His dream is to take over the houses, fix them up, fill them with furniture, and invite people in. He and I did a 1-on-1 to talk about how we can help people see his vision, so he's starting with art, mural ideas, and @adobe illustrator mockups. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see whatever is next for his thoughtful, focused mind to bring to life.
. . Truth is, we don't have all the answers alone, but when we can work together and share tools, anything can happen.
