Meet the 2017 Finalists: Aware

Posted by Jaimisa Gourley

Our Mission: To remove stigma against special needs.

What inspires you most about the work you do? Getting the opportunity to give people with special needs a better life!

What’s next for your organization? As of right we are working with looking for other high schoolers who want to open Aware clubs. Please contact us if you know anyone who is interested!

What have you learned from the SVP Fast Pitch process so far?  How to effectively time myself. At the first round of competition I hit 5 minutes on the dot and felt like I couldn’t add anything but low and behold after enough practice I was able to speak at a moderate pace and add material! Presenting is all about being concise.

What are you most excited about on October 24th? Networking! We are in need of more people who can help us add to our marketing plan and find other high schoolers we can work with!
