185 | Jenn Uche Interview

Doing something that you look forward to, that beautiful thing that you wake up and dream about. That is what I call success. - Jenn Uche

Welcome to the inspiring story of Jenn Uche, a 17 year old high school senior who has been chosen as a 2021 Global Rise Winner. This 1 billion dollar philanthropic venture was created and funded by Google co-founder, Eric Schmidt and his wife Wendy and is a collaboration between Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust. To find out more, just go to: Talented young people from around the world, between the ages of 15-17 are chosen through a series of essays, submissions and virtual interviews. What is unique about this scholarship is that it is for life and is valued at about $500,000 per student winner. An investment is made early on in the intelligence of these kids to become innovators, leaders, points of light for the next generation. 50,000 teens from 170 countries competed for this award, each one addressing how they would work to solve a particular problem. Jenn was 1 of 100 brilliant students to receive this honor. A student at the Montrose School in Medfield, MA where the mantra is: “where girls are called to greatness”, Jenn she is no stranger to struggle and adversity. She remains hopeful and determined “coming out the other side, like a diamond” and describing herself as a story lover, smile connoisseur, a writer and a visionary. I couldn’t wait to bring my recording equipment to Jenn’s school to capture the story of a 17 year old woman who is wise beyond her years and destined for greatness. #risefortheworld #empoweringwomen #womensupportingwomen
