What attacted you to SA Youth? The mission of SA Youth aligns with my own career goals: working to close existing achievement gaps in education among ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups.
How will your past experience further the missing of SA Youth? I have spent my entire career working in education and youth enrichment. I hope that my focus on relationship-building and positive social-emotional development contributes to the organization's goal of producing successful students and future community leaders.
What impact are you hoping to have on the organization and our mission? I want to be part of the effort to ensure support and opportunity for underserved youth. No student should have the quality of their education determined by their socioeconomic status, and organizations like SA Youth work to close the gaps that exist in our educational system.
