The Amazing, Brilliant Students from Manual Arts High School

Our guests today, Jorge Campos, Claudia Jorge, and Ethan Troupe are all seniors at Manual Arts High School who will be attending Harvard University and University of California, Berkeley this fall, majoring in economics, biomedical engineering and finance. They counter the stereotypes of inner city youth in every way - college bound, STEM majors and they just won a competition for youth leaders with a proposal to sponsor science fairs in elementary schools with high-achieving high school students from the neighborhood as mentors. They discuss their roles as role models and the challenges they see ahead.
