Adam Braun

Founder + Executive Director, Pencils of Promise

To be a part of Rachel’s world is something extraordinary, and somehow my organization (Pencils of Promise) without a single person who had ever thrown a gala was able to pull off what countless people have told me was the best gala they'd ever attended in their life. How? Because of Rachel.. Rachel, Rachel, Rachel. She was the steady, confident anchor we needed to hold it all together and I can never thank her and the Agent of Change team enough for what they enabled Pencils of Promise to become in that one night. We're now on the path we've always dreamed we'd get to, and my loyalty to Rachel is unending.
