Jennifer Lopez Was in New York Instead of the Oscars


Instead of attending the Oscars, Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend Alex Rodriguez went to New York City.

Jennifer and Alex teamed up with Project Destined. This program is a youth education program that promotes financial literacy and leadership training in under-served communities. Jennifer Lopez talked about the program and said, “So people from Harvard business school teach and mentor these kids on how to buy and own real estate and by the end of the program they own a part of a building in their own community in which the profits they make go toward their college educations.”

Pay it forward… @projectdestined

This is such an awesome program that helps and shows kids that there are other things that you can do. You do not have to work a minimum wage job your whole life with the feeling of never being able to get any further. This helps to show kids that it is possible to be a boss and own something and make a profit off of it.
