In 48 hours, I turned my 12 years of experience in the non-profit sector into $100K through crowdfunding. People and media from around the world talked about my story. I was invited to speak at conferences and schools about the campaign. The success of this campaign was a culmination of my work in non-profit partnerships, social enterprise, education, social housing and youth development. Since then, I have coached everyday people on how to crowd fund for their cause and raise their public profile. At last count, I've helped fundraise over $250K for incredible causes. My personal journey as a once-homeless high school dropout taught me about the power of a story. Now, as a Harvard student, I have learned how to harness that gift and share it with others.
