JA has made an impact on my life because it allows me to give back to my community and to connect with the future leaders of tomorrow. It is amazing to see how the students grow year over year to become more confident in their skills, and to see their entrepreneurial spirit rise.

While the successes are fun and rewarding, the challenges to get there can be tough and exhausting!  I have seen many students show so much growth, accountability, learning, ownership, and leadership over the past four years, and I am extremely proud to know that I have helped make that happen.
