Abhi: Thanks for having me, Spiffy. I was chosen to be a 2022 summer intensive scholar by Girls Who Invest—it was a life-changing experience! Girls Who Invest was founded by Seema R. Hingorani and aims to increase the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the investment management industry.
Tiffany: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! From surveying 680 high school students, I found that many care about making a positive social impact and want to start a business, but many don’t know how or have the confidence to do either. The difference in these numbers is more stark in lower-income communities where 62% of students lack access or can’t afford an entrepreneurship education at their schools. Fulphil creates equitable, inclusive, and fun social entrepreneurial curriculum to empower youth to make a positive impact in their careers.
Maria: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Early literacy is an essential part of a child’s overall development, but many families live in book deserts or do not have books at home. Book ownership should be a right, not a privilege. As Books In Homes USA's executive director, I work to serve children living in under-resourced communities, in literacy and beyond. The charity's vision is for every child to create their own home library with personally selected brand-new books to keep and enjoy.
