My Brother's Keeper

Romano Mckensie

2019-20 MBK Fellow

Eagle Academy Bronx


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

Innovative, unique, and transformative.


How has being involved in MBK impacted you?

Being involved with MBK it has impacted me in a positive way. I say this because I've been able to open my eyes for the future, not just for me but my community as well. I have been able to absorb the lessons and the mistakes from panelists that have spoken in the past, in order to get to where I want to be in the future. Not only that, I have an incredible bond with young men just like me who want to make a difference.


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

I look forward to my service project. I say this because I want young adults like me to become aware of what the financial sector in our life, and how it is going to look like if we start to become knowledgeable about it now.
