Artsy Ariel has been with Empow almost as long as I have! This summer she brought her creative energy to the role of a Junior Mentor, sharing her knowledge of movie-making and stop-motion, and helping organize camp games and activities.
1. As a camper, what do you like about Empow?
I really like the ability to be creative. I love combining art and technology to make a project- my most recent project being a whiteboard animation. At the Newton location, I loved hanging out in the pool. I also like meeting new people my age who love tech and art as much as I do.
2. What do you like about being a Mentor? What have you learned from the experience?
I liked being able to help a kid learn about new technologies. I learned that I enjoy helping people to become the best they can be. Empow has inspired me to sign up for peer tutoring at my school.
3. What are some of your hobbies or interests?
My favorite things to do are acting, singing, drawing, painting, sculpting, directing movies, and crafting. My favorite TV shows are Sherlock and Doctor Who.
