4E’s 12 Over 12: The Game-changers of Tomorrow

12 Over 12This week, The Hoya reported that five members of the Georgetown University and Georgetown Law community were featured in this year’s Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list. The list recognizes talented future leaders in 15 different fields, and notably, all those selected still haven’t hit the big 3-0.

But frankly, Forbes has nothing on these Hoyas.
