Inspiring Stories from Pennsylvania Kids Who Are Ready to Make A Difference

We're often asked why we're involved in the work we do, and while the specific responses may vary, our core belief is simple: we want to help kids. School choice—whether it be via open enrollment, public charter schools, or private school scholarships—is the key to helping thousands of students towards the education they deserve.

The results of those opportunities are apparent throughout our society—from classrooms to boardrooms to the halls of government, including the White House.

Sometimes it gets us thinking: where will the kids who are benefiting from school choice now end up in 20 years? We don't know the answers, but we can already see the seeds being planted for the next great scientist, public servant, executive, teacher, or philanthropist.

It's always interesting to see celebrities before they were famous; we like to think of this as something of a reversal of that. While we don't know exactly how, we know that these kids are going to make an impact on the world.

Take a look at the video below from one student, a recent graduate of Imhotep Institute Charter High School in Philadelphia. You'll be able to say you remember her before she made it big.

Check out even more videos in a series called "It's All About The Children," which spotlights Pennsylvania students who have used school choice to thrive.
