“Growing up, I’ve always known that I loved working with young people, had an interest in administration, and aspired to be an entrepreneur. Like many young people, I struggled with how to turn these varied interests into a specific career path. Things became clearer as a result of very focused internships, volunteering, taking assessments, and being coached. This journey led me to what I was designed to do.” Dionne Grayson, President & CEO of Lead2Change
