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!
