"Junior Achievement is what shaped me into the banker and professional that I am today. Knowing that taking just a day or two out of my full schedule could have such an impact on these kids for years to come — was truly worthwhile. I was a child who grew up in single parent home, and it really meant a lot to me to know that someone else cared about my well-being, and future at such an early age.
I admired it so much that I entered into the world of banking — just like my mentor. It only made sense to pay it forward when I had the opportunity. However, I had no idea that I would gain just as much out of this experience as an adult
The idea that you can influence change or ignite that spark in someone early on is hugely impactful to your community. Junior Achievement writes the curriculum for you. All you have to do is show up, and lead by example.”
