In this video from the 2020 FCPX Global Virtual Summit, Bijan Machen presents the We Uplift The World Foundation.
A few more videos from the 2020 FCPX Global Virtual Summit have been published - and we have missed a few of them! Let's fix that starting with this recording from the Summit last year.
Bijan shared his great passion for the future of education and the importance of engaging our youth through storytelling. His interest began when he created a 501(c)(3) for kids called AthleTECH that combined athletics and technology. As a former athlete, he brought in NFL and NBA players, and with the help of Microsoft, they collaborated and taught the kids how to code. His goal was to get students excited about a boring subject, and he knew he needed to find a creative way to keep their interest.
