Story

Every week, I go to Charlestown High School—a Boston Public School with a 50% graduation rate—and I work with Cookie and Shemiah, two sophomores starting their own small business. Over the past two years, I have interned and served as a mentor for BUILD, a nonprofit who's mission is to use entrepreneurship to ignite the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and propel them to high school, college & career success.

BUILD has allowed me to work alongside teachers, policymakers, parents, community members, and students to examine and challenge the framework of possibility for young people in under-resourced communities. I am passionate about BUILD's endeavor and have a steadfast belief that together, we can find solutions for our education system that scale. 

This year, for my 21st birthday, I am raising $1,000 for an organization that has profoundly impacted my college, life, and future experiences. Over the next 30 days (the entire month of April), I am excited to share more about BUILD and why it means so much to me.
