Why I care about making Breakthroughs happen: As a first-generation college student, I understand how important it is to have a community of mentors, teachers, youth advocates, and locals to support youth in achieving their goals and doing their best. I believe in making breakthroughs happen because children are not only the future, but also a community of thinkers, activists, and problem solvers that can impact our world in the present moment.
