What drew you to education?
I was able to complete my education while working full-time — sometimes two jobs with graveyard shifts — and still wasn’t earning enough to pay for my ocollege education. It was all possible because of all the available resources at the community, state, and federal levels. This is why I have encouraged friends and family to go back to school and have also provided guidance on where to start.
Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust?
I support the mission because I believe that everyone is entitled to a good education regardless of their socioeconomic status or color of their skin.
