AJ Moreno

AJ Moreno

Youth Media Makers Intern

I began the Youth Media Works program at CMAP in the summer of 2016.  From the first day, I could tell that the staff at CMAP was very true and genuine.  They wanted to help youth in the community gain access to new skills and experience. I knew nothing about multimedia techniques or devices when I began but when I left knew so much more that I was inspired to keep this knowledge alive by creating videos to spread information and stories.  They were also able to help me with resources and connections that made it easier for me to be successful with my school work. I loved being in the Youth Media Works Program and also being a Youth Media Makers intern.  It was such a great experience that I think youth in the community should really take a look at.
