VANDAL VOICES: HOW I BUILT AN ENGAGING COMMUNITY USING SOCIAL MEDIA
Date & Time: Thu, April 18, 2019 - 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM MDT
Location: Amsterdam Lounge
609 West Main Street Boise, ID 83702
In an age where social media can make us feel more disconnected, Diana DeJesus learned to use this tool as a way to connect and build a community. As the founder of a locally-centric Instagram page and a female-centric networking collaborative, social media grants her a platform to truly connect and engage by the power of storytelling while remaining authentic. During her presentation, she will teach you how to create an authentic brand while remaining genuine and using social media as a platform to make a difference.
The event is free and open to the public 21 years old and older. Please RSVP.
