BPT’s Featured Non-Profit: BrooklynSpeaks

Do you love New York? Me too!

A few weekends ago, I was fortunate enough to visit the Big Apple for the New York Worlds Maker Faire. Everything about the city was exciting; from dodging people at Grand Central Station, to strolling through the neighborhoods at  midnight. I loved listening to the variety of languages being spoken on the subways and savoring different culinary flavors on every block.
