Understanding the hardships of being raised in a household that didn't have access to a computer she created JumpStart Designers to bring access to those who need it.

The Spark

WHY I Created Jumpstart Designers

As a child I dreamed of making art and music videos and quickly realized that without access to tools or money, I'd be left to keep dreaming. My mother saved up and bought me a cheap laptop where I could start designing, it was a game-changer. Just imagine how many kids encounter this same limiting factor and this creative potential that is left stalled.

We created JumpStart Designers to give every child in underserved communities an equal chance to express themselves in the digital art space.
