Justin W., 17

Michigan

Justin really ran with his Summit project and created a nonprofit when he arrived home that focuses on child literacy. Find him on Instagram @StoryboxBooks!

“I knew this was an issue for which I could create a Community Action Plan to create change. After working late that night in my dorm room, I realized that my plan truly had potential. I presented it the next day, and within three months I had implemented it in my community. Fast forward two years, and that original Community Action Plan has blossomed into a nonprofit organization called Storybox Books."

Makayla G., 13

North Carolina

Makayla continued her Summit project at home in Charlotte, NC by coordinating a Human Trafficking Awareness event at her school.

My School Resource Officer supervised my project and we created a Human Trafficking Awareness Night for our school. We had over 145 students and parents attend this event to learn more about human trafficking. We asked students who attended the event to bring art supplies, which we then donated to Present Age Ministries to use during their group sessions.”

Garrett S., 13

New York

Garrett is quite the young leader! Since his Harvard Summit in 2017, he has earned a multitude of awards for his dedication to demonstrating leadership in his school and hometown. 

"Being a leader is not always easy. When working in a group, leaders have to show fairness to all. Leaders give ideas, accept the ideas of others, and are confident even when their ideas are not being used. To me being a leader is also about balance. It is not just about being a top student or volunteering hours, it is about being a leader in all circumstances. It is about integrity and a way of life."
