|BAYCAT Students Pull Together For Their Premiere!
Come Support Our Youth At Our Summer Open House This Thursday!
Less than a week ago, I emailed you about the theft
of our student laptops which was devastating to our Summer Media Camp. Today, I am emailing you to share one of the amazing stories as a result of The Show Must Go On Campaign.
Meet Omari, one of our youth media producers, who hopes you can continue to join the campaign to replace the stolen laptops:
This is Omari's first time at BAYCAT, and his Dad told me he's been waiting for Omari to turn 11 to be old enough to apply. Here's what Omari has to say about his BAYCAT experience this summer:
When my Dad first told me about BAYCAT, I thought it sounded really cool. I had some experience doing filmmaking from my English class in school, so I was excited to learn more about using computers to make films, and find more ways to get my voice out there.
I've been having a great time at BAYCAT this summer. I've recorded my own song, and have really enjoyed making music videos. I know that this experience will be great for when I go back to school, and I'm excited to keep making more music videos!
The BAYCAT Summer Media Camp is really great, we get to make our own show, that's screened to a big audience. You don't get to do that anywhere else I know of. I hope BAYCAT can replace all their laptops so I can keep taking classes here with all my friends!
We want to make this Open House bigger and better than ever for Omari and his classmates! Please support all of our students by joining us for the Premiere of "Zoom in 24: Only in San Francisco" (or tune-in live). Here's the invite!
Help us show them all their hard work and resiliency this summer has paid off by coming to the show!
See you Thursday!
