Shinebright was invited to mentor at this year’s SXSWedu 2016 conference.  It was an exciting opportunity to share our journey and to be inspired by the great work that is happening in the world of education.

Many themes came out of our time at SXSWedu but one of the biggest topics of discussion was the need to reform our one-size fits all education system.  Talks of personalizing student’s education experiences and tapping into the uniqueness of all our learners were especially inspiring to us.  SXSWedu was just the motivation we needed to continue to do our work of helping young people discover their talents and that unique thing they have to offer this world….because we need them, they are our future!
