About - Practice Makes Perfect. Growing up in Queens, Karim Abouelnaga was raised by a single mother on government aid and went through some of New York City’s most struggling public schools.
During this time, Karim experienced the achievement gap first-hand, and nearly fell victim himself: in the 7th grade, he had over 60 absences. Fortunately, a series of non-profits and mentors step into his life and ultimately change his career trajectory. Karim secured over $300,000 in scholarships to attend Cornell University and became the first one his family to graduate from college, doing so in the top 10% of his class.
At Cornell, Karim became aware of the inequities in education that had plagued his childhood, and he learned that two-thirds of the achievement gap can be directly attributed to unequal access to summer learning. Shaun David Hutchinson.
