#16: Speak at a conference.

Two weekends ago I spent a few days in Baltimore, for The Digital Family Summit; a one of its kind conference geared towards the digital content-creating youth of our age.

It was an intimate gathering with a host of interactive activities. I found myself walking around the event space in awe. Keynote speakers, panelists and even event photographers were all kids. We were given a space to collaborate, and share our honest thoughts and that was so very much appreciated… especially because it doesn’t happen often. Thank you Adam and Stephanie!

My panel, Kid Bloggers: Four Teens & Tweens Doing it Well, was definitely a success. My panelists: Victoria, Lauren, and Emily; along with our moderator Isabel facilitated and contributed to a great conversation. Questions ranged from how we initially got started, to whether or not we had a 10-15 year plan for our social media presences. They weren’t easy questions, but they were worth the effort.

For those that weren’t in attendance, you can check out my pre-speaking interview on the Digital Family Summit. I give insight on what the youth should be thinking about in terms of their digital footprint, and the reason that I started blogging!

On top of all my fun at the conference, I was also able to get some great shots for my upcoming photo project!

This has definitely been a weekend to remember.

And just like that, I’m at it again! 

Above is the proposal for this year’s SxSW PanelPicker on the topics of brand loyalty and awareness (well, the lack of it) in today’s teen.

As a teen myself, I’ve noticed that fewer and fewer companies are gearing their marketing efforts to us and when they actually do, they’re…. lame.

This has become a problem that is only getting worse… but it can easily be stopped with a humorous approach to the situation, a few creative ideas, and a person who has been through the marketing muck and knows ways in which they can be turned around… me.

With voting accounting for 30% of the final decision, SxSW shows that community engagement with potential speakers is important. With that being said I’ve spent some time scrolling through PanelPicker and I have found these five other sessions you should give your vote to!
