interview with k104fm's lady jade

THE MINT Foundation welcomed the K104 Summer Fun Tour to our C-MINT Summer Camp. After spending a couple of hours talking, playing games and dancing with the MINT Kids, Lady Jade sat down with Mark McIntosh for a one-on-one interview. They discussed the importance of "STEM" and she provided some valuable advice for him and his fellow generation of peers. THE MINT would like to thank K104FM and Lady Jade for their continued support of our organization and the children in our community that they impact in a positive way.
