Why I do this work:
In high school and college I worked for a nonprofit that serves at-risk girls in the mostly rural state of New Hampshire, most of whom didn’t have the same access to a high-quality education that I was fortunate to have. I saw their excitement for education emerge when given the chance to learn in a safe, nurturing environment and want every child to have that same opportunity.
