What do I care about?
I am passionate about building up, supporting, and amplifying communities of color. As someone who grew up in the inner city of Boston, with a mother who worked for two small businesses, I see the importance of making sure small companies have the resources they need to thrive and strengthen the communities they are serving. I feel very strongly that raising up communities of color is my life mission.
I remember a specific blog post about a gentleman in D.C. who, after taking the StreetWise MBA program, was able to expand his business, create new jobs, and support his community. He was able to give back and help others because of what our program did for him. After that it was very clear to me that Interise was making real change and I knew this is where I wanted to be.
