PromisePencilAuthor: Adam Braun
ISBN#: 9781476730639
Publisher: Scribner - 2015
The riveting New York Times bestseller about a young man who built more than 200 schools around the world—and the steps anyone can take to lead a successful and significant life.
Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just sixteen years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling he met a young boy begging on the streets of India, who after being asked what he wanted most in the world, simply answered, “A pencil.” This small request led to a staggering series of events that took Braun backpacking through dozens of countries before eventually leaving a prestigious job to found Pencils of Promise, the organization he started with just $25 that has since built more than 200 schools around the world.
