Congratulations to our friend Keren Taylor, for being selected as one of CNN's 2014 Heroes. This initiative honors "Everyday People" who are "Changing the World". As the founder of WriteGirl, an LA-based organization that's giving teen girls a voice by teaching them to wield the power of the pen, Taylor certainly fits the bill. No stranger to high level praise for her amazing work, Taylor was presented with a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award by Michelle Obama in 2013. We ourselves are honored to have had the pleasure of hosting several Write Girl workshops at Maker City LA over the course of this year and look forward to continued collaboration with this wonderful organization. Watch CNN's coverage of a Write Girl Fiction workshop that took place earlier this year at Maker City LA below and be prepared to be inspired.
