My BUILD Story
I am very thankful for all the opportunities I have had and feel a responsibility to pay it forward. In college and then graduate school I participated in alternative breaks, including helping with reconstruction after Hurricane Katrina. When I moved to D.C. I wanted to find a way to use my newly acquired finance skills to help others. BUILD was the perfect fit. I initially mentored a group of freshman students and was able to help them with tasks such as finding the cost of their products and figuring out how much profit they could make. I truly enjoyed watching students use business and entrepreneurship as a hook to stay engaged in school. When work prohibited me from continuing to mentor, I sought to stay involved by joining the BUILD Associate Board.
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $10,000 and a BUILD Metro DC Associate Board member will complete a challenge to show their support and appreciation.
