Jack McDermott Meet Education Project

MEP #024 with Jack McDermott, Tufts Student & Tech Entrepreneur

It is a natural human emotion (for most of us) to make excuses about why one should not take action.  Not Jack McDermott.  Jack is 21 years old, and he has taken more action than most of us have in a lifetime.  So, what is the difference between you and Jack?  Find out on Episode 024 of MEP!
