Karim Adel Abouelnaga (born December 15, 1991) is the Founder and CEO of Practice Makes Perfect (PMP), a nonprofit organization that aims to redefine the summer learning experience for low-income youth.
Abouelnaga's parents immigrated to the US from Egypt and the family struggled after his father died of lymphoma when Aboueinaga was 15. He and his older brother worked to support the family. In high school, he took part in a program called REACH that offered financial incentives and extra support to students from his low-income school who agreed to take advanced placement courses.
He is a graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration.
In 2013 Abouelnaga was awarded an "Echoing Green" Global Fellowship for his work with "Practice Makes Perfect". ("Echoing Green" is a philanthropic non-profit that invests in social programs.)
