Tiffany Haddish , through a partnership with Ready to Succeed, will launch an internship program in 2021.
“I believe that children that come from different cultures deserve a chance to work in the industry and I would like people that look like me to be able to represent me too in the industry,” Haddish said.
The youth selected for an internship will receive mentorship and opportunities, and a special suitcase. Having a suitcase has special meaning for Haddish.
“I remember when I got my first suitcase, I felt like I was a traveler, like I had a purpose, like I'm a person,” she said.
The internship is open to foster youth and/or systems-involved youth between 18 and 25 years old.
