CREATIVE OUTLETS

Kind Words USA

Kind Words USA was started by high school students to bring hope and positivity to hospital staff battling COVID-19. We have sent over a hundred notes to hispitals in the Chicago and New York area. Once you send in a note, we copy it down onto a card and send it to a hospital we are in contact with.

BLOOSHY

Created during my first year of business studies , I realized that phone accessories only stopped at cases, so I decided to add a funky accessory: phone strap made out of beads to make your phone cooler! This is where Blooshy started! I am now expanding the brand to jewelry such as bracelets and necklaces!
With these sad circumstances, I have decided to support John Hopkin’s Covid-19 research by donating  15% of the proceeds!

The conversation is a fun podcast where 12 juniors debate about numerous different issues ranging from philosophy to economics. Our show will be structured around facts and opinions, not on speculation. This podcast will be a conversation with people that have different viewpoints where the goal will be to debate and find solutions to the problems and big ideas present in our world today. Our team includes members from multiple nationalities, political affiliations, and different priorities in life. Our team collaborates on what makes the shortlist of topics based on things we are concerned and intrigued about. The executive producers are Marc Wahab (LFNY student) and Tom Klehr (LFNY student), under the direction of Miles Baratier (LFNY student), and with the participation of other LFNY students.

Culture Talk

Culture Talk was established in January 2020 by three college students who are passionate about changing education and sparking the growth of cultural education through our six pillars: heritage, trends, government, history, geography, and law.  Now with a team of 37 students (and growing!) from middle schools, high schools, and universities around the world, we collaborate across these six pillars and our multimedia platforms (magazine, blog, and social media) with propagating cultural awareness as our top priority. Our site serves to provide supplemental materials for educators to incorporate in their curriculum, as well as to engage students and community advocates in spreading cultural awareness within their respective circles.
