Here's a great post on the Cooney Center's Leadership Forum blog about the two GK leaders, Latavia and Janet, who were among the few youth attendees at the recent forum and covered the event on twitter and includes a selection of Latavia's tweets.
One of our favorites:
“Suggestions for any new changes for next year? I have one: BRING STUDENTS!”

Latavia and Janet from Global Kids at the Cooney Center's Leadership Forum
Janet is a high school student from New York City and a member of Global Kids, an after school program that supports urban youth to become global citizens, community leader and successful students. Last week she represented Global Kids as a youth journalist and traveled to L.A. to the Joan Ganz Cooney Center’s “Learning From Hollywood” forum. Along with fellow GK leader Latavia, Janet live-tweeted the event and used a Flip camera to interview the attendees and speakers. Below are her reflections on her time at the Forum, followed by her Tweet trail.
