Before the age of 21, Chase Adam traveled, worked, or studied in more than 20 countries around the world. He spent time in private-sector intelligence in Washington, helped start a national health program in Haiti, and served in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica. He’s rarely the smartest person in the room, but he’s usually pretty good at figuring out who is. Today, Adam is the co-founder of Watsi, a nonprofit connecting medical patients who can't afford the procedures they need with donors through the Web. The funds it collects go entirely to the patients, as the organization's own costs are covered separately.
