Greatest Impact

Through two non-profits that I co-founded and led, Leadership Scholars and The Hidden Genius Project, I have had the opportunity to directly mentor and train hundreds of marginalized youth, most of whom were black. In conversing with some of my former students, I see that the greatest impact I’ve had has been on boosting their belief in their own capabilities. Essentially, I believed in these young people so deeply that their beliefs about themselves shifted quite dramatically. As a result of this increase in their own self-efficacy, my former students have accomplished things that they previously wouldn’t have even dared to dream. Believe it or not, I’m proudest of the accomplishments that seem the least impressive. For instance, one of my former students told me that because he participated in our program, he stayed off the streets, unlike most of his family members, and he knows that he’s alive today and not in jail simply because of the program. He hasn’t graduated from college, but he is alive, working, and positively contributing to society.
