Education, access, and empowerment, when combined, become a powerful boost for humanity. The Gates Scholarship program mirrors this by helping outstanding minority students who come from low-income backgrounds realize their maximum potential.

Our CEO and founder, Kwanza Jones, understands this perfectly. That is why she had a fireside chat with Gates Scholars of Cardozo School of Law... Plus, she also graduated from Cardozo School of Law. She talked about how her law degree has helped her, her belief in the power of connecting and boosting others, as well as her fondness for constant change. Here are some of the points made:

  1. Constantly trying out new things leads you to discover and follow new passions and interests
  2. No matter what degree you’re pursuing, there are still a variety of options open to you in terms of your career choices
  3. No one succeeds alone. Sometimes, you need a boost
  4. It’s okay to have multiple passions, as long as you’re able to devote time and energy to each of them

You don’t have to follow the traditional path. Do what makes you happy and follow your dreams. We are rooting for you.

Be confident about who you are.

- Kwanza Jones
