Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust? 
Education is often coined as the great equalizer, but far too often it fails to live up to that promise. Growing up in the deep south I have seen that failure in action. I am a firm believer that school aged children are the future and deserve our full and uncompromised investment. Working at Ed Trust allows me to advance education equity & work alongside such talented advocates while showcasing my creativity. Working with the Tennessee team specifically allows me to advocate for students in the South, who I am fiercely passionate about.
