IT GOT BETTER
The It Gets Better Project is a nonprofit organization with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth around the globe. Growing up isn’t easy, especially when you are trying to affirm and assert your sexual orientation and/or gender identity. It can be a challenging and isolating process – but, the good news is, no one has to do it alone.
I was proud to be a part of this award-winning campaign.

buildOn breaks the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education. Their Service Learning Programs in the U.S. mobilize urban youth to contribute intensive service to their own communities - helping seniors, young children, and homeless.
Through buildOn, these same students build schools in developing nations, like Haiti and Malawi. These schools are educating more than 92,000 children and adults each day. In the U.S., 92% of buildOn youth graduate high school and go on to college.
It was an honor to join buildOn in Senegal to capture the groundbreaking ceremony of their 1000th school.
