This fall, a company I co-founded, Spring Street Social Society, worked the literacy non-profit 826 Valencia that provides writing and literacy education to underserved kids in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and beyond. As I continue to mature as an adult, I am increasingly aware of the value of exploring ideas through reading and writing — pursuits that, during my own childhood, formed a strong foundation for the successes I’ve experienced in my own life.
