Annie Wang, co-founder of HerCampus, Jason Chu, L.A. based Hip-Hop and spoken word artist and Rita Ng, owner of Boston BonBon will all be dropping some juicy nuggets of info. And if all that creativity in one room hasn’t motivated you to check this event out, then at least the indoor swings at Hatch Fenway should. I mean, I’m just sayin’.
