Why I do this work:

From the first day of kindergarten when I ran onto the school bus, I have always been passionate about education. As I grew up, I came to understand how much I benefited from the educational opportunities I had, and how many children don’t have those same opportunities. I believe education unlocks potential for individuals and our world, and that all children deserve the opportunity for a great education.
