[VIDEO DESCRIPTION AND TRANSCRIPT: Laine stands in the middle of all Jr. NAD Pages. Everyone is wearing a Jr. NAD t-shirt.
LAINE: Why did we join the Jr. NAD Pages program?
Everyone asks each other why.
DOMENICO: My dad convinced me to join. I wasn’t sure if I would be overwhelmed or stressed. I decided to try and join because I knew this opportunity would benefit me in the future.
LEILANI: I joined for the experience.
LAINE: I joined because I love leadership opportunities.
ROBERT: To meet people and learn from them
TIAN: New experience
HENRY: Professional development
IVABELLA: Develop new friendships
ZARITA: With COVID-19, I stayed home with limited leadership opportunities. Now, I feel enriched. I am a Latina myself, I established a BIPOC organization at my school. NAD gives me the resources and tools so I can invest in the BIPOC communities at my school.
All Jr. NAD Pages cheer.]
