Quick: Look to your right. Look to your left. Is there a bright young thing in your midst?
If you’re living and working in Greater Boston right now, there’s a good chance you’ve probably encountered at least one young person who’s full of potential, someone brimming with ideas and ambitions who you know you’re going to be keeping track of for years to come. With the end of the academic year upon us, we thought it was a good time to survey the crop of young adults whose ideas are helping to shape the future. This year, we’re hoping to highlight the work of 25 young people 25 and under.
