Another year. Another trip to BIF. Another opportunity to
showcase Hope High School’s impressive brand
build networks of successful professionals.
8 Hope Life Skills students arrived at Trinity Theatre in Providence on Thursday, September 15th, at 7:30am for a day of listening to 16 fascinating stories from a diverse group of people from all over the world on the Trinity stage and later network with these same storytellers and hundreds of members from the BIF audience.
Storyteller, Kalimah Priforce, from Oakland, California, shares his amazing personal story of growing up in a group home in New York City, starting his own computer service company at 16 years old and selling it at 20 years old before dedicating his life to community service in his murdered brother’s memory.
Hope Life Skills students network with BIF attendees during one of the breaks in the program.
