CHRISTOPHER COLLINS SENIOR, HOMEWOOD-FLOSSMOOR HIGH SCHOOL – 100 BLACK MEN OF CHICAGO, INC.
My time with the 100 Black Men of Chicago, Inc. has been very eye-opening. I’ve learned a lot from the weekly sessions and have been exposed to many different career paths. I also received valuable insights regarding life in America as an African-American male. I enjoyed learning about the stock market most of all. Even though I am not interested in a career in law, the mock trial sessions were very interesting as well. I’ve learned a lot in such a short amount of time. I appreciate my mentors for helping me update my resume in preparation for the annual college fair that the chapter sponsors. I’ve attended the college fair for the past two years. It has helped me decide which college is the best for me. The Black Men of Chicago, Inc. has been a beneficial organization for me and I’m glad to have been a part of it.
