This year at our 22nd Anniversary Gala we had the great pleasure of presenting Hannah Bronfman with the Youth Empowerment Award, and look forward to a partnership supporting New York City public schools. Hannah has achieved great success as a DJ, model, fitness blogger, and entrepreneur, and we are thrilled to see her continue to inspire today’s youth.
We were honored to hear from Armughan Choudhry, a seventh grader at America’s School of Heroes, introducing Valerie Jarrett as Urban Tech’s Humanitarian Award recipient. Armughan brought the house down with his speech on social justice and current events through the lens of a young immigrant coming of age in today’s America.
