As a Social Innovation Fellow, he is hoping to combat transnational wealth disparities through creative and sustainable solutions. Back home, Noah played a critical role in implementing the Achieve Miami academic enrichment program, a non-profit organization serving disadvantaged student populations in the Greater Miami Area.
