As part of her mission to cultivate strategic partnerships with funders, innovators, techies, and educators to increase college access for under-resourced communities she met 100 people in 100 days – laying the groundwork for what would become the premise behind her book, heyFRIEND!

From intrapreneurship to entrepreneurship, Keisha shares her perspectives on what it means to think entrepreneurially.
