So excited to have spoken about the wonderful experience of participating on the pilot show “FundTank”! The show was brought to us by the YouthNique organization and it allowed contestants to not only have their nonprofit organization compete for funding but to also get GREAT coaching advice from Marc Parham, a well-known career guru!
Long story short, there were great competitors that really showed how they are fighting to change the world and I was more than honored to be a part of their space at that time. I was even more surprised when I (GreenGelo) was announced the winner of the contest and would not only receive funding to work with more high schools, but would also get support and guidance from the funders themselves.
This is proof that you can’t give up, even when others give up on you. It can be a lonely road sometimes, but you have to stick to what you believe in and keep pushing! So grateful for this chance and I won’t stop now!!!
