Time is the main reason I decided to get involved with the Empowered Youth Internship. Somewhere between high school and turning 40, I realized my time on earth is finite, and the purpose of my short existence is to ensure the quality of life continues to improve for future generations. I find philanthropy an effective way to support the future generations. When Ada and Alexis introduced EYI’s philosophy and practice to me, I knew right away their program aligns with my own beliefs. Recalling my own youth, I understand how early exposure and hands on internships can expand young people’s perspective and life. Supporting the Empowered Youth Internship in many ways brings meaning to my limited time here.
