Sapphire Jule King's divine calling is to improve the quality of life for families and children. She began her service to others while just a child herself. At age nine, Ms. King started tutoring neighborhood children in math, and her affinity for helping kids achieve that academic 'aha' moment grew stronger as she grew older. Thus, after earning her bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Ms. King moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where she pursued her community service work in earnest. She continued to tutor disadvantaged youth and adults struggling in reading and math pro bono. Moreover, she served as the Activities Coordinator for homeless children at a Phoenix shelter, Youth Oratory Contest Judge for the Arizona Optimist Club, and Acting Coach and Assistant Director for a Native American Outreach theatrical production with Actor's Workout, Inc. Ms. King's devotion to her work was solidified when she received recognition for the After School Creative Writing Program she created and taught to middle schoolers in an alternative charter school. Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Central Arizona also awarded her for outstanding commitment as a Big Sister. In those two moments, she understood the greater impact her efforts had on improving the lives of others. Simultaneously, Ms. King volunteered for four years as a Recovery Coach for teens and adults addicted to alcohol and other substances. Likewise, she served a two-year term on the board of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence in Phoenix. Ms. King consolidated her volunteer work when she founded International Freedom Coalition in 2009—a nonprofit dedicated to building strong families to eradicate child maltreatment worldwide.
