Dear Bold Friends,
Happy New Year! We’re grateful you’re with us during our journey to curate and amplify a powerful generation of new leaders. Since our November 30 launch, Bold has been featured by Columbia Journalism Review and CNN and represented on CBS, Fox News, MSNBC, Fox Business & more. We are excited to serve as a social platform for a diverse generation of thinkers and creators.
So far we’ve highlighted dozens of stories of courage and enterprise, including a 24-year-old Muslim Republican woman who is speaking out against Donald Trump’s intolerance, promising new leadership in Latin America, and a young African-American activist commemorating the legacy of Rosa Parks.
We can’t wait for the adventures of 2016, and we appreciate your vital support! Along the way, don’t forget to #BeBold! We’d love for you to join the Bold conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We’re excited to expand the Bold dialogue together.
We look forward to growing with you in 2016. We hope it’s your boldest year yet!
