My BUILD Story
BUILD’s focus on students from under-resourced communities entering high school with flagging grades and few resources and amazing track record of graduating those same students four years later well prepared for college and career success never ceases to amaze me. I was home schooled through middle school before attending a specialized math, science and technology high school. In addition to raging FOMO and a bit of a nerdy streak, that background gives me a great appreciation for the value of individualized attention and educational programming that highlights the real world value of classroom skills. BUILD gives me the opportunity to help bring those resources to young people who need them most. Being part of the transformation of these students into engaged entrepreneurs could not be a more rewarding experience.
