As a high school educator, Samantha Sinclair found the same student questions about college coming up year after year: How much does it cost? How do I pay for it? What do I need to prepare? In fact, it was the same information she sought as the first person in her family to pursue higher education. To help these kids learn about everything from financial aid resources to possible areas of study, Sinclair founded Pathway to Purpose. The New York City-based company offers early college awareness resources and events for middle school and high school students and their families.
With the benefits from American Express’s 100 for 100 Program, Sinclair plans to build national awareness and get her college prep flashcards into the hands of one million students across the U.S. In this video, Sinclair shares her inspiring mission and where she’s going next.
