Walker’s Celebrates “Unlikelies Challenge” Winners

Esi Obeng ’18 and Lillien Gruber ’19 were recognized as winners in the Unlikelies Challenge, a nationwide contest organized by Carrie Firestone, author of The Unlikelies.

Carrie challenged young adults to “make a mark on the world.” Entrants were asked to write about doing something noble to solve a problem, help the environment, advocate for social justice or on other topics that inspire a person to action. Esi wrote on “Educating Young Women in Ghana” and Lillien on “Incubators for Infants in Nepal.” Each of the girls was awarded $1,000.
