Middle School Lecture in the Bronx

Wow, what a rush! Yesterday I gave a lecture to 250 middle school kids in the Bronx on working with invisible communities. Nothing more intimidating then middle schoolers, but they were totally awesome. Some very deep and thoughtful questions and lots of smiles.

I was amazed at how curious and outspoken they were, totally willing to engage in conversation. When I think back to my middle school assemblies I remember silence, teachers would have to coax questions out of us.

One young man asked "Have you ever felt invisible?". Put me on the spot just like that, I love it!

Thank you Bronx Riverdale Country School for a great experience!
