Dr. Nadia Lopez Episode

This week we sit down again with Bklyn Combine sister, PNC, disruptor, principal, and author, Dr. Nadia Lopez to get some perspective on what it feels like 10 years after opening a school in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. Dr. Lopez started Mott Hall Bridges Academy middle school in 2010 and has since done everything from a TED Talk about starting a school to close a prison, to creating a hair festival at her school in an effort to address issues of self esteem. Join us as we also discuss the corona virus, physical and mental health and Kenneth's insecurities. We are the Bklyn Combine, a not-for-profit community organization. We work with schools, community organizations, and dedicated city officials to help provide mentorship, critical education, leadership, and social support programs to youth and young adults in low-income and underserved communities.
