will.i.am Suits Up with MCM’s Armour

09-04-2014

Singer and songwriter will.i.am is of course well known for his music, be it tracks he produces or actually performs solo or with his band The Black Eyed Peas. Little by little he is also known for his ongoing support of digital media, and more particularly the intersection of education and technology. For this very reason, he was invited to Mount Saint Mary's College in Los Angeles to talk to the students about this topic dear to his heart. You can read more about his intervention on the college's website.


Here is an excerpt from his speech: "There is no shortage of basketball players, or musicians, or entertainers, or Instagram uploaders,” he said. “But there is a shortage of engineers! We don’t have enough young women like you grow up saying, ‘I want to be an engineer!’ We need you.



 

Ever the stylish dweller, will.i.am was carrying his Armour Collection backpack to his lecture - do you remember the Armour collection from last Spring/Summer? This is how you can tell who is a real friend - he could have ten bags from our new collection, but he chooses to carry an old faithful - just like all of us, he has his favourites of course.
