VERIZON ‘You Don’t Know Me’ PSA

"You Don't Know Me" is a PSA created to support Verizon's Innovative Learning initiative which gets students into STEM focused learning. Verizon has been focusing their resources on minority males from the ages of 10 - 14, trying to break the stereotypes that effect this group, not only giving them access to a STEM education, but showing them that they can be so much more than the stereotypes.
