Rescuing vs. Empowering

At a recent event, this young prodigy asked me about the benefits of #electric vs. internal combustion engines.

He was so well-versed on the topic that I'm not sure if I told him anything new!

He even knew the Star Trek symbol!

*Live long & Prosper*

I feel so privileged to take him under my wing.

#students of color often grow up without resources, role models, or support for their obvious aptitude.

I'm tired of seeing beautiful minds like this in #jail 15 years later.

I'm so excited for his #future that I'm taking action.

But I don't want to rescue him, I want to #empower him. There's a big difference.

I won't stop until I've empowered hundreds of thousands to action!
