Bio: Simone Cocks-Charles is a Cincinnati transplant and owner of Blush the Event Loft, a multi-use coworking space in Downtown Cincinnati. After moving to Cincinnati in 2014, she volunteered for Cincy Chic and other organizations around the tri-state area, which led her to create Social Butterfly Events so that introverts and extroverts alike could connect.
Project: Simone's project, College Trunk, is a mobile recourse for college students from low income households that will provide care packages and other upcycled necessities, making the transition into college life easier. She hopes that this will help to extend the reach of the FAFSA application, increase awareness of proper usage and increase the successful integration of students from low income homes into universities.
