May 2015. Lunch table with the coolest 5th graders in the world.
Every year I participate in career day at Brownsville Middle School. I've met some of the kindest, sweetest, brightest, most ambitious kids here. And it's truly a blessing to have the opportunity to interact with the next generation of lawyers, doctors, coders, inventors, CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, astronauts, scientists, presidents.
These kids are the reason why I get up every morning and go to work. There is no other option. It's my duty to set the example and pay it forward—to show black and brown boys and girls that they can do things and go places far beyond their wildest dreams.
Keep dreaming, my loves. You're almost there! #TBT
