NAAAP Detroit Learn & Grow Series 2018 Session III Held on July 14: "The Creative Process and its Application in Problem Solving"

“The Creative Process and its Application in Problem Solving” workshop, part of the signature Learn & Grow series organized by the Detroit chapter of the National Association of Asian American Professionals (NAAAP Detroit), was held on July 14th at the Office Coffee Shop in Royal Oak.
