National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature

Through his platform, “GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story,” Jason Reynolds, who regularly talks about his journey from reluctant reader to award-winning author, will redirect his focus as ambassador by listening and empowering students to share their own personal stories.

Reynolds has created two digital features that fall under his “GRAB THE MIC: Tell Your Story” platform: a video series titled “Write. Right. Rite.” and a blog series titled “GRAB THE MIC Newsletter.”
