Why St. Louis?
I choose St. Louis primarily for two reasons: to attend Washington University and to live surrounded by the numerous tech incubators and start-ups. I am a tech entrepreneur and St. Louis allows me to tap into my true potential outside of academics by hosting coding hackathons, innovator meet-ups, and start-up showcases.
Why Full Circle?
I chose Full Circle because I am passionate about their mission to connect young talent to St. Louis. I can witness the college campus “bubble” and I hate that. I want to help burst this bubble and show young talent that St. Louis has hidden potential beyond an arch. The bridge between education and employment in the city needs to be built, and I am passionate about assisting in any way possible.
