Creating opportunity for equal education for all.

Fascinated by the intricate workings of the human brain, Quentin is off to Pitzer College to study neuroscience. In high school, he completed a community awareness project on mental health and depression in the African American community. He presented his work at an annual health care summit for the Health Occupation Students of America Club, where he serves as president. Quentin is well on his way to a career in medicine, already achieving certifications in CPR, AED, and First Aid, and invited to begin clinical rotations with the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

Beyond his future in medicine, Quentin wants to eradicate education inequality in low-income communities like his own. He plans to create a nonprofit after-school program to teach leadership skills and promote academic achievement.
