August was an interesting month for our team; we wrapped up our youthexperts Online group and hosted our first online Design Lab! It was bittersweet to wrap up our final few meetings that included a reunion at the end of the month. Our final few individual sessions were extra special to host; you MUST stay tuned for what's to come. This group of young people are making amazing impacts in their
