Why SEA? I felt incredibly drawn to SEA due to its mission of building socially conscious leaders who drive positive change by tying business back to the community. The field of business could easily be seen as a self-profiting industry. The mission of SEA encourages people to turn around and remember the importance of helping others and making a positive impact in our community. I know that SEA will provide its members with volunteer opportunities and a likeminded community to grow our passion for social entrepreneurship.
