At the Korea Daily’s J Leadership Camp, hosted at Pepperdine University in Malibu from June 21-26, students will learn how to harness the power of their passions and make their voices heard.
Over the week, kids entering the sixth through 12th grades will learn about journalism and critical thinking from Korea Daily staff while working in groups to create multimedia journalism projects made possible through our partnerships with Samsung and SoundCloud. The Korea Daily has also invited guest experts who will be leading workshops about their own specialities.
On Day Three of the camp, students will participate in a New Media Workshop with the following distinguished guests:
Phil Yu. As the creator of the Angry Asian Man blog, Phil Yu has spoken out against racism and discrimination with a mix of satire and journalism, and he has been featured on National Public Radio and on the cover of KoreAm Magazine’s 20th anniversary issue in November 2010. Mr. Yu will show our campers how to use journalism to speak up for their beliefs.
Alesia Humphries. Studio Santa Clarita is the new Youtube channel of the SCV Signal, a thriving paper that documents life in the Santa Clarita Valley. Since launching last year, Studio Santa Clarita has been highlighting important people and stories in the area. Ms. Humphries will talk to us about how journalists serve their communities and create value for the subjects they feature.
Chris Ziegler. Mr. Ziegler co-founded LA Record, a music magazine and website that started as weekly poster-sized paper and became one of the most influential music publications in the US. In addition to his work for the Record, Mr. Ziegler is also a contributor to OC Weekly and LA Weekly, for which he has served as guest editor. Mr. Ziegler is coming to camp to show student how to advocate their passions.
