The Immigrant Entrepreneur is sponsoring a writing contest for youth in the Philippines, in conjunctions with Kendii.
Carmen Feliciano, the founder of Kendii, grew up in a small town, on a small southern island of the Philippines.
You can hear Carmen tell her story here; she tells how books helped her bring her mind far beyond her circumstances.
How she was able to attend university in Manila, join a tech start-up, and then come to America to attend the #1 rated Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
And how she began Kendii, while at Wharton, to inspire young people in her country to read and then write!
