Kassi’s Talk: Create local, go global

Illiteracy continues to be a global problem.  Research indicates that children who fail to attain proficiency in reading by the age of ten will experience significant repercussions in both their individual lives and broader society.  Kassi began her career as a school administrator, and has gone on to develop a ground-breaking initiative called “Book Days” that breaks through literacy challenges experienced by young children. 

And now, she’s scaling it up to reach thousands more kids, both nationally and globally. Thanks to this experience, Kassi believes that every individual possesses the capacity to effect similar positive change, and aims to inspire everyone to unleash their natural creativity to solve global problems, regardless of their background or job.
