We Are All Capable To Make A Change
As a freshman at MIT, Vick wanted to Syrian refugees stay warm during the winter. By combining what he had learned as an Eagle Scout in the Scouting program with what he was learning at MIT, he and his team developed a multi purpose sleeping bag that is being used as a disaster resilience tool to improve the quality of life for displaced persons living in exposed, vulnerable conditions. Throughout the project, he adopted an attitude of doing whatever it takes to make a difference and in the process, he has realized that we are all capable of creating change we keep hoping for.
