See the impact of your work, in person!

24th October 2014

During our weekly company updates, we read out testimonials from students, teachers, and parents, and I’m reminded of our work’s impact. Even so, there’s a distance between them and me (literally!).

That distance shrunk to 0 at the Grace Hopper Celebration career fair a couple weeks ago, where Pamela, Kayla, May-Li, and I represented KA. We met over 800 of the 8000 GHC attendees over the course of three days, and so many of them came up simply to say:

I love what you’re doing. Keep it up!

I didn’t understand my professor, and then I found Khan Academy.

You helped me pass Calculus
Physics
Chemistry
Econ

I’m not looking for a job yet, I just wanted to come by and say thank you.

Coming up on four years at KA, I’m somehow still surprised when I meet someone in real life who learned something with KA. It’s nice!
