Nonprofit of the Month: Girls Make Beats

Tiffany Miranda is on a musical mission to help more girls find their place in the industry that she loves.

Since December 2012, the founder of Girls Make Beats has been introducing professional DJs, music producers, and audio engineers to girls ages 7 through educational seminars, summer camps, and networking events.
