Dr. Anissa McNeil is the Founder and Executive Director of the Unstoppable Awards. She is a former foster youth who believes that education is the pathway to a sustainable life. Dr. McNeil states that the experience of homelessness, foster care, and subsequent guardian care by her grandmother were events which formed her beliefs and desire to build an opportunity for foster youth to achieve their education goals and go on to live the lives they desire. We want to help make then “unstoppable”!
FOR THE UNSTOPPABLE AWARDS
The Unstoppable Awards began in 2015 after the passing of Dr. McNeil’s grandmother, Mrs. Isabella Jones. The Unstoppable Awards were started in her loving memory. Dr. McNeil: “My grandmother did not know much about formal education but she always encouraged me to continue my pursuit of education. She would say ‘You can do it, Ain’t Nobody Stopping You!’”
