Thank you to our partner Ford, for presenting Usher’s New Look Detroit youth Dante Hollis and Ciara Lee, as well as Los Angeles youth, Nadji Jeter, with the opportunity to lead Expressions at this week’s Ford Freedom Awards Scholar Lecture! Expressions is a core Usher’s New Look activity where youth showcase their talents in front of others in order to step out of their shells, build confidence, and see themselves as leaders.
“We led a fun session of Expressions for roughly about 1,600 students. Later on that evening, we attended the awards. Ford presented awards to their essay winners, the Ford Freedom Scholar Award, and also the students who won at the Ford Hackathon, which we helped lead last month. We had 25 youth along with their friends and family from the program come out and support! ”
Thank you Ford for inviting our students and parents to this inspiring event. Check out some pictures from the evening below!
