St. Demetrios HS Students at Twitter HQ during Media Literacy Week

NEW YORK – St. Demetrios High School 11th graders Frida Kasimis and Kaliopi Tsiros along with 12th grader Antonia Kouridakis were invited to visit the Twitter headquarters in New York City and participate in conversations with journalists, educators, and their own peers on the topics of school culture, anti-bullying initiatives, and respect for basic rights on October 24 as part of National Media Literacy Week organized by the National Association for Media Literacy Education.

The Saint Demetrios Honors students were chaperoned to the event by Laura Smith, English teacher. Kasimis, who is also a member of the online social wellness group # I Can Help, and the other young ladies were engaged in debate and dialogue on how teenagers and their actions- both positive and negative- are perceived by the media. In addition, the students met executives from Twitter who were welcoming and held a small reception for the participants.

Kasimis, Tsiros, and Kouridakis will take what they learned from their participation in this event and use the key points at meetings of their school’s Debate and Newspaper clubs, according to a news release from St. Demetrios High School.
