“What inspires you?”
This past Spring, six students from our evening tutoring program met weekly to create our first Tuesday-Thursday Night Talent Show Podcast.
Daniela, Vanessa, Nadia, Deisy, Leslie, and Nasim eagerly joined 826LA’s Youth Advisory Board in Mar Vista and developed a podcast from beginning to end all on their own. Every Friday, these students livened our space with their ideas, laughter, and love for pizza. From designing and distributing posters and flyers to recruiting and recording talent, these students took the initiative and created incredible original content.
The podcast features the very different talents of three 826LA students – Michael, Lily, and Ashla. From violin solos to poetry, these students shared their talents and what inspires them, where they’ve been, and where they’re going.
Listen to the podcast below in Spanish and English:

We’d like to say a very special thank you to volunteers Jocelyn Ramirez & Kerstin Zilm for all their hard work and dedication to this project. Thank you for eating pizza and having fun with us!
