I grew up in a house full of Peace Corps stories. My dad served in The Gambia from 1967-1969, and as soon as I graduated college, I joined as a Youth Development volunteer in Peru.

I started Jump Finance after seeing my most talented former students struggle with financial hardships that stopped them along their paths to becoming professionals. Our $2,500 prize brings us closer to our goal of launching a pilot program this year in The Gambia.
