“Be passionate about what you do. Be thorough and thoughtful doing it. Be a leader. Make something. Make a difference. These are core Art Center values and Environmental Design student Alvin Oei embodies all of them. And he gathered a talented team of like-minded students who wanted to make a difference. He tapped into the student organization UNITY, founded by the powerhouse duo, D’Angelo and Martel McCornell, better known as The Next Level Brothers, who designed a program to teach the process of making a film and capturing a story. Russell Singer, a Graduate Transportation Design student, was recruited to teach the kids how to create objects out of basic shapes and figures. Product Design student Vanessa Shababzadeh (also affiliated with UNITY as its vice president) created products for the project and Environmental Design student Leo Su made models based on the kids’ sketches and storyboards. He also recruited fellow Environmental Design students Jessica Rovanio and Sean Chen. As Oei explains, the lesson he learned about leadership was, “make sure you have a good team.”

Albert Hernandez, Director of Operations, Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena, said, “It was a great experience for the kids because not only were they learning all this neat stuff but it also showed them that there are great people in this world who care about them, who came out and volunteered their time to be engaged with them and offered such a great learning experience.”
