Networking Reflective Practice: Voices from Hive NYC

We recently published three new StoryEngine interviews based on our work telling the stories of the members of the Hive Learning Network in New York City.

First up is Lori Rose Benson. At the time of the interview Lori worked at the YMCA of Greater New York and was leading the Y-MVP digital badges program. She currently leads Hip Hop Public Health, a non-profit dedicated to empowering youth around the globe with the knowledge and skills to make healthier choices, reducing preventable health conditions and the rising tide of childhood obesity.

Currently Dixie is a senior user experience researcher at Google, where she supports education-related products and services through strategic research and partnerships. Read her story!
