The world is full of good people. Sometimes it may take a moment for us to really see who those good people are but just because we can’t see them does not mean they don’t exist. As a teenager I often questioned if in fact amazing people existed. It was not that my parents were not good people because they were but I often wondered if they were the only ones who existed. I would often hear horror stories from friends who were surrounded by negativity and sometimes I felt embarrassed that my life was full of positivity.
As I progressed through life I began to realize that my parents were not the only good people in the world. In fact, some of the very people in my community were good people and I had to just be open minded and let them in. A few of those good people are Keely and Keith Mann.
Keith and Keely Mann are a dynamic duo that has been well known for their hard work in the investment banking industry. Keith, who is now the CEO of Dynamic Search Partners first began his career managing the Alternative Investment Division of Dynamic Associates.
Recently, Keith launched a scholarship in a partnership with Uncommon Schools in Brooklyn, New York. If you are unfamiliar with Uncommon Schools it was founded to help prepare low-income students to attend and graduate from college.
Each graduating high school senior was asked to write a 1,000-word essay about how a college degree would aid them on their professional and educational journey.
Keith Mann decided to partner with uncommon schools because he truly believes that the children are our future. He believes that in order to see the next round of leaders take center stage we must be willing to invest into to their lives and into their future. As he spoke with his wife about his dedication building the next generation of leaders she decided to join forces with him and together launched this scholarship that is sure to impact the lives of the students who received them.
So yes, there does seem to be a lot of negativity flowing throughout the world but one can be reassured knowing that while there are some bad people in the world there are truly some good people in the world like the Mann family and once you encounter people like them your life will never be the same again.
