Hakeyh Watkins

Student and Explorer, The Newark Museum and St. Benedict's Preparatory School

Hakeyh learned to adapt to quickly changing situations as a young kid who was transferred often as he and his mother moved for better opportunities. He credits those experiences with giving him the strength and determination to work for a better future. After years learning to be self-motivated and socially aware, he is going off to college to study accounting, finance and Spanish so that he can learn relevant skills to help unite and empower communities.
