How it all started

As a 10-year-old I went with my father, Alan Pariser to visit Kenya on safari, but when I arrived I was shocked by the lack of available medical care and the normalcy of poverty that was all too familiar for these people. Privately, our tour guide would explain the shortfalls of the Kenyan government and expressed the importance of a good education. He showed me that my citizenship gives me a unique opportunity to have an effect on my own government and positively affect those outside of our borders. I believe that this influence and power to effect change lies within us and we have the freedom and ability to decide how we will use it.
