BOULDER MAYOR SUZANNE JONES VISITS DREAM TANK KIDS AT MUSEUM OF BOULDER
The Dream Makers made their own campaign videos to provide momentum to different movements they thought would improve their lives and the lives of those around them. They pushed to change state law, ban styrofoam and single use plastics, and incorporate more school field trips. They were very excited to learn that Mayor Jones, the Mayor of Boulder, would be coming to see their videos in person and give them advice on how to follow through with their hopes.
Here’s some of the feedback and suggestions from the Mayor to the Dream Makers, collected by Lori Preston, ED of the Museum of Boulder:
“People like you can make change”
“Talk to Casey Becker – Speaker of the House —a Museum neighbor”
“Talk to State Legislature members”
“Change happens when people don’t give up on ideas and join with you“
“Try to make dreams come true!”
“Explore Growing Up Boulder – open space”
The Dream Makers were over the moon to meet the Mayor and be able to share their ideas. One little Dream Makers, the youngest of the group, 7 year old Jaia Bliss Hottinger, had learned about power poses convincing our minds and bodies to be confident during Dream Tank. As she was nervous to meet the mayor, she stood in the corner doing a power pose for 2 minutes before meeting her. Dream Tank youth power training, activate!
