Stubbornly optimistic, entrepreneurs believe they can make a difference, in spite of the odds. And they don't stop at just thinking these innovative thoughts -- entrepreneurs then create new organizations to make the changes they want to see in the world. And by doing so, they inspire others to follow.

Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Alex Bernadotte moved to the United States with her family when she was a young girl. Her parents encouraged Alex to view getting into college as an important goal. But, once she received her admission letter to Dartmouth University, Alex found many challenges still lay ahead for her. Alex Bernadotte created Beyond 12 to help bridge the gap between K-12 and higher education to ensure that all students succeed in college.
