“Due to the current changes in our way of life, my approach as Ambassador has had to change, too. My role and goal is to get young people to express themselves and see value in their own narratives, and since I can’t, at the moment, physically come to them, I’ve created the ‘Write. Right. Rite.’ video series—short clips that offer fun and engaging prompts to help spark young people’s imaginations, which in turn will spark their expression.” – Jason Reynolds, 2020/2021 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature
