Thomas Greenage – Neilom Fellow
Thomas grew up in a family of farmers and blue-collar workers, and the mentality surrounding him growing up was “provide for yourself”. Through multiple high-paying internships after he reached college, he grew to realize that the money didn’t wake him up in the morning, and the things that he bought with it didn’t bring him the happiness he anticipated.
Becoming friends with others who have also become Neilom Fellows, and seeing how they spend their time helping others, and the gratification they receive from being involved in giving back has influenced his outlook on his potential future. He is looking forward to joining a group of diverse thinkers to tackle big problems, and making his mark on the world to help others through technology entrepreneurship.
