Recently, one of our amazing Millennial Impact Fellows, a group of young social change agents that joined us at the 2017 Gathering of Leaders, was featured in the New York Times.

Emily Hadley is a graduate of Duke University, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Statistical Sciences and Public Policy Studies. While at Duke, Emily was a head tutor with the America Reads America Counts program, as well as President of her dorm, and a statistician for two research terms. Since graduating in 2015, Emily has gone on to work as a college advisor for College Advising Corps., where she helps over 120 students implement and plan their college careers.
