I founded Reboot for Youth in March 2014 at the age of 14. The idea for the organization sparked when I was volunteering at a free tutoring program called GIVE which targets low-income families. There I met a young student who did not have a computer to complete homework. The lack of technology in this student’s home forced the constant usage of library computers, which does have limited access. Being a computer hardware enthusiast, I wanted to use my talents to benefit the lives of students worldwide in our increasingly connected society.  As a result of my hard work and dedication, I was recently selected as one of three Project Managers at an IT firm in Georgetown, specializing in leadership and management. I still volunteer at GIVE, as the City of Fairfax Regional Library Center Manager overseeing the tutoring logistics of the center. In my free time, I enjoy building my own computers, snowboarding, playing golf, and spending quality time with friends or family. In the future, I hope to work in operations and management -- specifically in the education-sector.

It's shocking that more than half of low-income students in the U.S. do not have access to a computer. Our mission is to increase educational opportunities for underprivileged children in the U.S. and the world through increased access to technology.
