TEDxYouth@CherryCreek Speaker

How can high school students develop critical thinking skills, courage to use their voice, and become more effective communicators? Creative writing. It’s powerful… but it’s not what we’re taught in the classroom.

In this talk, Anna explains how language arts teachers can prepare their students for The Real World. 

Host of Soaring Together 2022

Soaring Together 2022 is a free online event for teen business owners. Every day for 4 days, 4 pre-recorded workshops from teen and adult business owners went live, so that our 200+ attendees could watch from home. We covered topics like selling at pop-up shops, planning for product launches, capturing product photography that sells, building relationships on Instagram, and more. 

2022 Denver Startup Week Speaker

It's a problem that most makers have: while they're fabulously creative people, their marketing is not. And with the help of a few creative writing techniques, anyone can take their website / emails / blogs / product descriptions from bleh to "I've read EVERY post on your website out loud to my best friends (safe to say we're obsessed). When's the next one coming out??"

AnnaMade Design Co. Video Feature
