OpportunityNation, a campaign powered by the people to focus on the revitalization of the American Dream, will be launching its “Mentor Chat Series” tomorrow, which will allow the general public to engage with opinion leaders and successful industry experts. The series serves to provide tangible tools and advice to people as they pursue their dream career.
The inaugural chat will be hosted by E! News correspondent Michael Yo and Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham. The singer/actress/writer/dancer will speak about her experience breaking into the industry and the people and organizations that helped her along the way. Graham was chosen at 17 by the Coca-Cola company to star as one of the “Fantanas” in an international campaign to promote their soft drink Fanta. She simultaneously completed her college degree in recording engineering during this time. Since joining as a regular on the hit series Vampire Diaries, Graham has continued pursuing her passion in music, recently completing a world tour with The Black-Eyed Peas and releasing her first single, SASSY.
Fans can join the conversation by submitting questions for Kat at OpportunityNation.org/MentorChats and watch the LIVE interview on April 26th at 1 pm PT to see their questions answered and hear advice on creating a path to doing what you love and overcoming adversities along the way. Question submissions will also be accepted during the live chat by tweeting them @oppnation or posting on the organization’s Facebook, Facebook.com/OpportunityNation.
OpportunityNation is working to build a multisector national coalition for a non-partisan agenda to enhance opportunity and economic mobility in America. Before their national summit in November 2011, they will be uncovering, discussing and debating the best approaches in education, job creation, community development, and healthy families to create an opportunity agenda for our nation and our communities. OpportunityNation’s vision is that every man, woman and child should have the opportunity to reach the American Dream.
Launched at the 7th Annual “Roots Jam Session” during Grammy weekend, OpportunityNation is the newest campaign of Be The Change, the organization that launched ServiceNation and the civilian military initiative ServiceNation: Mission Serve with First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, and Mrs. Alma J. Powell.
