I listened to the a16z podcast today with Ben Horowitz interviewing three siblings – Caleb, Asha and Ima Christian who further reinforce the impact that each of us can have when we commit to creating solutions for the betterment of society.

These three African-American teenagers epitomize the very fiber of this generation – one that’s determined to be heard and truly ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’
