Redefining Excellence, Success and Community Investment
An innovative approach to driving a change in the standard narrative of education.
Many of us grow up with limited resources and limited options. We have been conditioned to believe that education only comes in one form, that success only has one aesthetic and "making it" only has one road. We want to decolonize and challenge the social structure that has been imposed in our communities and has influenced an oppressive way of thinking and supporting those in need.
