Students of the Month

Each month, Youth Interactive usually shows our appreciation to one young entrepreneur that went above and beyond in their work by awarding them Student of the Month. This month, however, the Student of the Month award goes to TWO amazing students – Kristina Fishbach and Karim Cortez. They have both been such amazing students that we just couldn't decide!!
