Joey, Katie (Joey's girlfriend) and I met a wonderful family at SW Maker Fest in AZ. They came to the festival just to meet him. The mother said they had been following his story and her son really wanted to meet Joey. She was similar to me...having no idea what her son is talking about.
The mom and I have been talking - and hopefully I am helping her...well, as much as I can. :)
She has also helped me, I have realized that I do have information and support to offer.
Joey gave the boy his 3x3x3 LED Cube Arduino Shield Kit and promised to make it together with him. Reagan (the boy) was so excited. He said it was cool that Joey was a normal kid. That means the world to me.
I just found out yesterday that the family has changed there summer plans and are coming to +Maker Faire It makes me think of the day we set foot at our first Maker Faire.
So if you see him at Maker Faire - Say HI!
I knew Joey was making an impact on children, but had never seen it right in front of me. I couldn't be more proud of the young man Joey has become.
Thanks +Maker Faire bringing kids together!
