Ally and Emma Chen

As rising high school students in the 2020 quarantine, Ally and Emma Chen designed an initiative to benefit youth in healthcare environments through their childhood interest: art. Their initiative sprouted into a nonprofit organization named Youth Creativity Project that is focused on donating art resources to local hospitals. Through YCP, they expanded their artistic passion into other fields of interests, such as volunteering. While trying to develop new fundraising options, they came across a peculiar new technology coined “Non-fungible Tokens.” This new innovation sparked their interest, and they began to explore the cross sections between arts and economics through NFTs. They hope to one day apply the knowledge and potential of NFTs to our nonprofit as a fundraising option. Website: YouthCreativityProject.Org Social media: @allych3n, @emm4chen, @YouthCreativityProject
