National Geographic Kids Teams Up with Second Lady Jill Biden to Encourage Young Photographers
10 winning photos to be displayed for a month at Vice President’s Residence in Washington, D.C.
In an exclusive interview with National Geographic Kids Insiders, Dr. Jill Biden, the Second Lady of the United Staes, shared her excitement for the My Shot program (a moderated photography program for kids). In Go Adventure Magazine, we’ve shared lots of great photography tips on teaching children photography.
For me, teaching children photography is a great way to make the outdoors a blank canvas for creativity. The My Shot program is a great way to get kids involved in photography.
NGKInsider: What can children do to make a difference?
Dr. Biden: They can be involved in their community and address problems that they see by helping with community projects. They can serve meals to the homeless, help the military, provide aid for national disasters and around the world. Creating their awareness of the world around them, for example talking about the refugee crisis in Syria makes all the difference.
I love that she believes in children and that kids can make a difference.
