Your host, Dr. Katrina Burrus interviews in this episode the executive director of Inspiring Children Foundation Mr. Trenton Alenik. The Inspiring Children Foundation prides itself on transforming under-served youth into high-level, hard-working, aware leaders that stand apart from the widespread mediocrity, excuse-making and blame-casting that is so prevalent in the culture of youth elsewhere. Hundreds of alumni attest to how the program has changed the trajectory of their lives, helping them to excel at college, start their own businesses, and lead in their environments, all while inspiring the communities around them. Trent Alenik is a Las Vegas native and graduated from Odyssey Charter High School. Trent was a highly ranked national junior tennis player, earning a ranking of top 40 in the United States. He earned a scholarship to attend Villanova University where he played on their Division I men's tennis team and graduated with a degree in finance from their business school which was just ranked #1 undergraduate business school by the Bloomberg survey. During college, Trent worked for Merrill Lynch doing wealth management and with Barclays Capital in corporate finance. Upon graduating college in 2011, Alenik took a job with the Inspiring Children Foundation where he is now the Executive Director. Trent serves on the board of the United States Tennis Association and is the winner of the RUDY Award & Mike Agassi NO QUIT Award.
