Don Yu, director of Better Make Room, supports former First Lady Michelle Obama's Reach Higher initiative to inspire all students in America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university. Better Make Room seeks to celebrate education, change the national conversation and reach students directly where they are and give them a space to create content while also navigating the college-going process. With partners in the business, philanthropic, media and education realm, this campaign will stretch across the country to inspire students and give them the tools they need to reach higher for college.
