My Brother's Keeper

Jermaine Cooper

2019-20 MBK Fellow

Corcoran High School


If you could use 2-3 words to describe MBK, what would they be?

Educated, different, and successful.


How has being involved in MBK impacted you?

It impacted my life by listening to what speakers had to say at the event.  It showed me that you can change and everything around you can change. Your intelligence and your choices change your life and if you were to listen to the people at the event, it could make you successful in the long run.


What do you look forward to most as a 2019-20 MBK Fellow?

What I'm looking forward in the most of 2020 is more black young men joining My Brother's Keeper. To successfully move their life forward and graduate high school and get to notice that the world is changing. The world needs more than just one person to lead it to a bright future but mostly the whole youth to lead it to a new future. We need more adults, more of the youth, more of the people in general to come together and change this world.
