This Is GRIT White House Education Datapalooza Presentation


Published on

#ThisIsGRIT is a video campaign showcasing stories of people just like yourselves, who have faced hurdles, challenges and hardships in pursuing their collegiate, professional or development education. They come from widely diverse backgrounds, their ambitions lie in different directions, but they all share something in common: they leveraged GRIT to press through their hard times and onward to success.

Years of research from world experts in psychology show GRIT to be an absolute essential element in success.

This presentation was given at the White House Datapalooza on Jan. 15th, to showcase the amazing work that our team did in just under a month, to take concept from idea to functional web product.
