Chloe's story

Chloe was an exceptionally bright child who seemed to have everything going for her...

She was raised in an affluent Black community and even skipped several grades in school. Behind the curtain, however, she dealt with abusive parents which led to her living on her own at age 12. Chloe overcame those hardships, graduated from Amherst, and eventually landed a dream job on Wall Street. Only to encounter a toxic work culture and systemic failures that perpetuated inequality. This sparked Chloe's passion for wealth justice.
