In December, Daniel W. ’15 and I went to the Business Innovation Factory for a workshop on reality television. With about 15 other students, we helped BIF with their design concepts for a series for high school students, by high school students.
Afterwards, in small groups, we designed and pitched our own shows. The focus was to create a reality show addressing the high school experience and especially the college search. My group’s show, #TheStruggle, follows four students from different backgrounds in the daily struggles of getting through high school and provides valuable advice.
It was amazing to work with other impassioned community members with a mission to make the high school experience a little better for teens across America. After a night of spirited discussion, our ideas are in the hands of the BIF. Stay tuned for the trailer!
