is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in March 2018 in Houston, TX, USA as a public charity in youth education and professional development.  We provide professional and skill development opportunities through the education of STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) and Entrepreneurship to youth (6-18 year-old students) while enhancing under-represented and under-privileged women & minorities in STEM and business professions and leadership roles. Through speaking engagements, workshops, boot camps, hands-on training, and shadowing and mentoring opportunities, students interact with local STEM and Entrepreneurship companies and professionals, enhancing their creativity, innovative thinking, problem solving, and vital business skills. Our goal is to focus students' passions, future goals, and pursuits to ensure their future success, bridging the education gap between current scholastic learning and students’ future career pursuits. Through these efforts, we aim to change the face of education, cultivating today's youth into tomorrow's Entrepreneurs, Business Leaders, and STEM Experts.
