I am a writer, so it’s not surprising that I don’t really enjoy presenting. My perfectionist tendencies tend to get the best of me. But when Cody Marx Bailey from Downtown Cartel asked for a speaker for Refresh Bryan/College Station, I decided to step up.
My talk is called “Making Social Media Matter: How Social Media Turns Everyday Citizens into Superheroes”. I’m going to be presenting the Blood Drive Tweetup for the first time in public. While creating my slides, it was amazing to remember how many people stepped up in such a short period of time. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of it and hope that my presentation inspires others to create similar drives and movements in their communities.
This presentation is dedicated to my sister, Debby Greer-Costello, who is still struggling with graft-vs-host disease, and to Johnny Romano, who recently passed away of leukemia at the age of 10. Johnny fought a hard fight against ALL and AML for three years. I ask that you extend your thoughts and prayers to his family at this time.
