VOX teens Chris Jordan and Jasmine Martin (with help from Treston Rush, 17, and Joshua Nash, 17) interviewed Omari Spellman of the Atlanta Hawks. Spellman, 21, is not only an athlete but also a poet — and recently hosted a poetry workshop at Gresham Park Recreation Center in DeKalb County. Check out the video!
The latest episode of the VOXCast is a special one. VOXers Chris, Eric and Lyric sat down with Mailchimp CEO and co-founder Ben Chestnut. In this wide-ranging conversation, we covered Chestnut’s roots (he’s from a small Georiga town we never heard of), his teenage years and the sacrifice it took for him to build Mailchimp from a small e-mail marketing company into a small business champion that is worth more money than you can count.
