Leadership Team

Amber Briscoe
President & Founder

Amber is a sophomore at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. She decided to start the ARTS-n-STEM4Hearts foundation after discovering that arts and STEM can have a positive impact on the lives of others. Through her middle and high school experiences, Amber realized that not everyone has adequate opportunities to participate in arts or STEM. She was inspired through her own volunteering experiences at different hospitals and Title1 schools to make a meaningful impact in the lives of children and the elderly by sharing arts kits and knowledge of STEM. Amber’s vision is to use her knowledge of arts and STEM to creatively help people with their health and life issues.
