“It was my great honor to be conferred the Dreammakers and Risktakers award at the young age of 14. The platform under the leadership of Innovation Tri-Valley gave me an opportunity to showcase my programming and entrepreneurial skills. ITV also helped me connect to a wider network of business contacts which opened doors for more opportunities. As I head out to Harvard College this fall, I highly encourage all young boys and girls to dream big and keep their entrepreneurial passion burning and stay humble and grounded at the same time.”

The Tri-Valley is a gem in the Bay Area and the Leadership Group of Innovation Tri-Valley works tirelessly to advance our business-friendly and family-focused community. Our business and civic leaders know that the education of our youth is a worthy investment. The young people honored and showcased at this annual event are tomorrow’s leaders. The skills and values they embody demonstrate to all that the future is in good hands.”
