How did your time at the CGA help prepare you for this role?
Re:Coded was born from my time at CGA - I first traveled to Iraq in 2014 as part of my masters and it was where the idea for the organization was born. While I have always focused my career on social impact, I found my vocation during my time at NYU in empowering youth people from underserved communities to thrive in the workforce of today and tomorrow. For this, I will forever be grateful for my time at NYU.
