"My life has completely changed since I became an IMPACTJUNKIE. I don't even recognize the person I was 10 months ago. I see opportunity where I only saw despair, and now I am getting my MBA and determined to do more with what I've been given."

Crystal Napier
MBA student, inventor of new type of coffee pot

"My new business went from idea to hiring full-time employees in less than a year. Sharing my impact story with every potential customer made those sales possible. As an IMPACTJUNIE entrepreneur, I had the resources and community I needed to eliminate my biggest fear - to fail in the first six months."

Jacinta Compres
Founder and owner of Clean Co, The Cleaning Company

"Everyone has a shape in their heart that only their calling fits in. Mine was an X. This IMPACTJUNKIE journey has not only helped me uncover my passion, but has connected my passion to my purpose."

Dalton Nichols
web development entrepreneur

"Since joining IMPACTJUNKIE, honestly feel like I am no longer split between two worlds. I am empowered. No longer do the ideas that run through my head have to remain just ideas and dreams, but they can be and are actual creative thoughts that can help others."

Zuri Obado
Johns Hopkins Academic Advisor
