Student Minority Day at Microsoft

On March 10, 2017, I got picked from my school to participate in Student Minority Day at Microsoft. While I was there, Trayon White the Ward 8 Council Member gave a speech on how he grew up and became successful and then gave back to his community. The staff at Microsoft was so nice. They gave us prizes and showed us their products such as the Xbox1. We had to get into groups and do a 30-second pitch on how we can fix problems at a fast food restaurant and my team won.  Overall it was a nice experience and I hope to go back there sometime.
