Our People

Estee

Estee

Founder and Director

Estee was a Peace Corps volunteer in Coronel Oviedo, Paraguay from 2011-14. She saw that kids were not at all apathetic like grown-ups said. They were passionate, driven, and eager for positive change in their communities. While getting her MBA at the University of Washington, she received a grant for the pilot program to teach life skills and empowerment to 1200+ students. The Zero Violencia pilot program in 2016 exceeded all expectations, so in January of 2018, she returned to Paraguay to spearhead the launch of The Superkids Foundation.
