Javairia’s desire to make a difference in the lives of children and families is what drew her to Thrive, and it’s what keeps her there.
For Javairia, the smiles and success stories of the families she helps are what make her work meaningful. But it’s not just the success stories that keep her going. Javairia is also motivated by the barriers and challenges she faces. Every day she learns constructive lessons that help her serve the families she works with even better.

Partnering with centers that share her passion for changing the access to early childhood education is one of the best parts of Javairia’s job.

Just one person and one place can make a lifetime difference for one child, and Javairia is proud to be a part of that change.
