Using Photography to Create Awareness

F.A.S.T Track provided students from Crenshaw High’s Business Management & Entrepreneurship Academy with a glimpse into the business world by giving access and exposure to senior executives in the finance sector.






Earlier this year I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a group of students at Crenshaw High School who were a part of the Business Management & Entrepreneurship Academy.  These students participated in the pilot program of Financial & Scholastic Training (F.A.S.T) Track.  F.A.S.T. Track provides students with exposure to the financial industry, one-on-one mentoring, access to senior executives while instilling in them key principles to develop tomorrow’s leaders.  It was an inspiration to watch the transformation of these students into accountable young adults. 

The story and photos were aired on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program on June 10, 2011.  Click below for a link to the clip on Morning Joe, including photos, and discussion:
NOTE: Fast-forward to 13.32 minutes for clip.

F.A.S.T. Track’s Program Director is Ramsey Jay, Jr., and is sponsored by the National Association of Securities Professionals, Southern California Chapter.

The opportunity to be able to use photography to tell a story and create awareness for this cause has been priceless.  I look forward to continuing work of this kind...
