I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity recently to reflect on how the Junior Achievement Community has affected my life. In 2013, I participated in the essay competition that revolved around the following question: “Which will do more to improve life in the United States over the next decade, business entrepreneurs or social entrepreneurs? Why?” I remember reading the question and asking out loud and responding – Why not both?
On March 4th I spent the day in a place I hadn’t been in years (and truthfully never thought I’d be back in) – a 6th grade classroom. I was there in support of “Junior Achievement”, a great organization that is dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship.
