A true Harlemite, Alize Beal was fortunate enough to learn that arts and culture are important to cultivating a young mind. She studied Opera and performed with the Young People Chorus of New York City from the age of eight until she was senior in high school.
At Howard University Alize immediately became a shining student leader; working on the homecoming committee, serving on numerous policy boards, and becoming one of the top mentors to underclassmen and perspective students. One of her proudest moments, however, would come her junior year where she was asked to speak on solutions for ending domestic violence at the White House.
Without a doubt, Alize is a young philanthropist working to bring change not just to Harlem, but the global community as a whole. Beal has a passion for the youth and is enthusiastic about helping them attain their highest potential. She believes that the youth in Harlem must be taught not to put a ceiling on what they want to achieve and that everyone has to create their own path to greatness. She wants Harlem to regain its rich culture while she gives back to the community that gave her so much. After perfecting her craft in finance and marketing at IT recruiting firm Tek Systems, Alize is in pursuit of becoming the first female Mayor of New York City.
