Kari had heard about the Shape The Sky community and approached me about wanting to role model and teach responsible use of technology with youth. I’d been wanting to have youth engagement and leadership in the Shape community since the beginning of the movement to “Create Responsible Kids on Smartphones/Devices.” Before we met, Kari had already created her “Get S.M.A.R.T. (Social Media Awareness and Responsibility Training)” and was looking to connect it to an organization that had a similar mission. Kari believed that one of the first steps was for youth to take a pledge to use technology responsibly. I loved the idea of the pledge and encouraged her to create one that kids can take and share with their parents.
Thank you, Kari, for your contribution to Shape The Sky’s mission!
