Cristo Rey Alumnus Delivers TedTalk and heads to Instagram
LAWRENCE, MA, July 2019 - Prior to graduating from from Notre Dame Cristo Rey in Lawrence in 2015, Emilio Joubert experienced an unstable childhood and uncertain path. He recently shared that his Cristo Rey experience was “... life changing. I don’t use that term lightly either. Cristo Rey got me through the hardest years of my life and I am so thankful for the support that they showed me. Cristo Rey taught me how to create opportunity from very little - it showed me that believing in someone can unleash their true potential. Cristo Rey believing in me was the most important thing that could have happened during my teenage years. I will always look back at my time there fondly.”
Emilio recently spoke at TEDx Georgetown. where he recently graduated from Georgetown University, and is getting ready to work for the Partnerships team at Instagram in Los Angeles. Emilio has dreams of opening a school of his own one day. He begins talking about Cristo Rey around 10:45.
