Meet mentor pair Jade & Carol
High School: High School of American Studies at Lehman College
Publications & Recognitions: Affinity Magazine, Scholastic Art & Writing Awards: Gold Key.
Carol and I share more than a love of journalism and storytelling; we bond over the parallels between our generations. Each piece with Carol is an analysis of myself, our world, and its future.
Occupation: Author and Journalist
Publications & Recognitions: Fellow, Stanford Longevity Center: The Wall Street Journal; Bloomberg Business Week.
When Jade shared her feelings about growing up on a neighborhood that has morphed from mostly Dominican to white—with bodegas converting to upscale coffee shops—I suddenly saw my community with new eyes.
