BENEFITING: Sponsors for Educational Opportunity, Inc.
Hi Friends, As some of you know, I am actively involved with Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO). SEO provides superior educational and career programs to young people from underserved and underrepresented communities to maximize their opportunities for college and career success. I currently serve as the Co-Chair of the Junior Leadership Board and a Scholars and Career Mentor. My favorite part of volunteering with SEO is seeing the transformative impact that it has on its program participants, and I can personally attest to the fact that SEO changed my life. SEO equipped me with the right skills (and most incredible network) to begin my career in the private sector. Today, I see the same transformative impact on the lives of my mentees, such as Doruntina and Woodjerry. Doruntina is off to London this summer after her first year at Boston University and Woodjerry is currently a QuestBridge Scholar at Swarthmore. Doruntina, Woodjerry, and I are among the myriads of motivated young folks that SEO equips with the right tools to reach their career and academic potential. I hope that you'll contribute to my Birthday Fundraiser this year in lieu of any gifts to enable SEO to continue this important and impactful work!
