Project Outside the Box

Role: Co- Founder and Presidentprojectoutside-icon1
(June 2014 – September 2014)

Project Outside the Box is a six-week summer teen empowerment program aiming to provide new perspectives and opportunities for girls who come from lacking environments. Check out our website! 

Project Outside the Box allowed me to serve and inspire local high school students, who often lack stable guidance, by giving new perspectives on higher education though our weekly activities.

For first generation students, college is often considered out of reach; however, through college tours, panels, and financial fitness classes, we have shown that college is a possible long term investment for their future. Along with promoting higher education, we work to broaden their cultural perspectives and community involvement.

During my time with the Project, I also had the opportunity to speak to with Congresswoman Susan Davis about the concerns of education and her views on improving the education system in San Diego.
