BROOKLYN HEIGHTS -

A Brooklyn woman quit her Wall Street job to help students succeed in school.

Tai Abrams now works at Admission Squad to help young children across the city achieve their goals.

Admission Squad started in 2016 and helps a select group of minority students prepare for high school.

For four hours a week, 6th, 7th and 8th graders strengthen their skills in math and English.

Admission Squad is hoping to expand throughout the city in the next two years, looking at Harlem and the Bronx as future homes for their program.
