He has become an attorney, but just as easily could have been killed. He grew up in a rough part of Washington, D.C.

Minorini believes Phil speaks for all of the kids in the BHGH program. “That tells you a little bit about where they might have ended up,” he says. “But I tend not to think about where they’ve been and instead focus on where they’re going.”

His favorite part of the job is interacting with the scholars, whether it’s playing a board game with kids in Brazil or directing the summer camp’s annual basketball tournament.
