I grew up in Harlem, NY after emigrating from Saint Lucia at the age of twelve. With the help of nonprofits, I attended Middlesex School before earning a scholarship to Trinity College. Upon graduating, I began my career as a derivatives trader at Citigroup. While the work was rewarding I felt something missing, and tried to fill the void by working (and playing) harder. In 2011, I found a circle of like-minded individuals who found purpose in using their time, talent and money to make an impact. My personal experiences with nonprofit organizations helped fuel my passion to develop a technology platform where other young professionals have the opportunity to engage with nonprofits at a higher level. I founded CariClub, a unique online platform strategically positioned at the intersection of corporate citizenship and professional networking.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
