University of Colorado Denver - 2018
Poverty, poor child welfare, and limited life opportunities overlap for too many people. For these people, a sense of confidence, wellbeing, and community are missing. Knocking down the barriers to success begins with helping people develop a positive self image. I plan to focus my project on serving populations of underprivileged youth. By building their confidence through empowering leadership roles and mentoring relationships it is my hope that the young leaders of tomorrow will understand how they can make a difference in their communities today.
