“I’ve always been a Math, and Science person. I realized that I had the privilege of being able to heavily study these subjects, with the right resources and environment.
But there were a lot of others, who didn’t have the same advantage. It’s not like people from the low socio-economic sector wouldn’t want to have access to getting the jobs that we might have the option of applying to – it’s just that they don’t have the means to do the same.
Over time, after going through trial and error with TribesforGOOD, we finally curated this compact bridge course – which was full-proof and ready for launch!”
