What’s Up, Creative Hustlers! Did you know the children really are our future? If we empower them today with knowledge, they can very easily transform our world tomorrow.
Today’s episode is about a #CreativeHustler who embraces this model for change and is doing so in a big way.
Meet Sarah Hernholm. She is the Founder & CEO of Whatever It Takes, or WIT, a social entrepreneurship, and leadership program for high school kids, giving them the ability to earn 6 college credits.
We sat down with Sarah inside of Downtown Works in Downtown San Diego to chat through her inspiration and how she went from Hollywood to inspiration Home Run.
