First Step

Everything begins with a First Step.

Do not be afraid to take it.

Thank you Constellation!

Congratulations First Step Team on being Constellation Community Champions for the third year in a row! Thank you Constellation for the grant!

I envision a future where we all think about how to make the world a better place and start by taking small but concrete steps. I have always wanted to clean up trash, save coral reefs, solve hunger and other large scale problems. 

That's why I founded this team. Let's all take the First Step to a better future.

-- Annie Lin, founder and 2020-2024 president
