A class discussion led to a prime social entrepreneurship opportunity for Joojo Ocran ’17, who’s interning in Washington, D.C., this summer with a nonprofit that provides digital access, digital literacy training and low-cost devices to disadvantaged communities around the world.

The son of two entrepreneurs, Ocran is a double major in international business & management and French & francophone studies who’s long been interested in global social innovation and entrepreneurship. He learned about EveryoneOn last spring, during a campus visit by the national organization’s founder, Zach Leverenz ’01. After a class discussion with Leverenz, Ocran struck up a conversation, and the two hit it off.

As the organization’s summer communications intern, Ocran writes a weekly blog, prepares press releases and crafts social media posts. “We have so many things to do and not enough people to do it, so Joojo has been a huge resource,” says EveryoneOn CEO Chike Aguh. “He’s going to leave us in a much better place.”
