Why I do this work:
My “success” is the result of advocating parents and community supporters, who fought and navigated a broken system to ensure that I received above-average educational opportunities. I believe that all students, regardless of circumstance, should have an opportunity to experience a tailored educational experience that discovers and harnesses their talents and intentionally prepares them for the person they are meant to become. I am dedicated to using my skills, earned and natural, to create a more effective and equitable system that supports this effort for Black and brown students.
