Our ‘Littles’ from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Miami visited our Coconut Grove Office to talk about “Mindfulness and Empowerment” in the Age of Social Media with Special Guest: Baby Ariel.

They started with a meditation, followed by a talk on the effects of Social Media in today’s society. The day capped off with a tour of Grove at Grand Bay designed by Bjarke Ingles

 

Baby Ariel if you don’t know, is a South Florida Teen on Musical.ly who has embraced her passion of music through the power of Social Media. With over 2 Million People subscribed to her YouTube Channel alone, our Littles received great insight on personal agency from a peer their own age.

The final part of the day was with a tour of Bjarke Ingles designed Grove at Grand Bay:

“twisting forms that draw the eye skyward and create a highly animated presence”(Miami Herald)

 

The transformative powers of the adjacent architecture was the perfect way to end the day. It taught our littles that with a catalyst of creativity, anything is possible.
