Last month I was invited by Dana Nunnelly to speak to some of her students in this year’s Microsoft Apprentice Program (in partnership with YouthForce). Every year they select a group of promising teens in tough situations (financial or otherwise) who pair up with project teams at Microsoft for internships while they’re still in high school. After talking with these young adults for an hour, and experiencing their intelligence and passion, I’m more hopeful about our collective future than ever. Can these kids take over the world soon please?
Dana explained they all have a major presentation as an upcoming assignment, so to help them out I sent them a box of my bestseller Confessions of A Public Speaker. And they were excited enough about it to take a photo and send it my way as thanks. Good luck!
