Empower to Innovate
Ever since the 3rd grade, I had a sort of entrepreneurial drive which I believe most young kids have. Despite the strong interest that myself and many others hold in business-related topics, school systems across the U.S. and the world lack strong financial literacy and business education programs. This is a pervasive issue which affects lack of entrepreneurship worldwide as well as the way citizens manage their finances. My goal is to address this problem by starting a nonprofit called Empower to Innovate because I have confidence that business education teaches the skills necessary for students to think critically and be more innovative. The nonprofit will provide scholarships and microgrants to schools that need them, meet with legislators to advocate for the importance of business education, host competitions for middle schools, and essentially use every possible effective avenue to advocate for business education!
