Jory Miller: Owner of Dffrnt Apparel

Jory is a dad first, an entrepreneur second. He hopes to inspire others to be confident & comfortable in their own creativity. His goal is to make sure he leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.

Aidan Strother: Wrist.World

Wristworld began as an experiential learning project in collaboration with Loveworks Leadership and Trifecta Communications, a tech and ad agency based in Oklahoma City. By using augmented reality technology, for months the students worked hard to develop the interactive game world, plot and characters and introduced Wrist World, an AR video game on 5 slap band bracelets. One band even features Hatsune Miku, a popular Japanese vocaloid which opened up international sales. Aidan is a 17 year-old incoming Junior in high school. He’s had various volunteering experiences through both Loveworks and other camps throughout the years, and is one of the founding members of Wrist World, and he is actively working for the marketing team, specializing in art and graphics. His favorite activities include volunteering, tabletop games, and reading.
