Seeing my family’s faces when I walked on the stage to receive my college diploma, becoming the first in my family to attain a bachelor’s degree.
Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust?
As a member of a low-income immigrant family, education was the last thing on my mind. I graduated high school with the mindset of finding a job first rather than attaining a college degree. It was not because I didn’t want to go, but lack of access and opportunity. I joined The Education Trust because I truly believe in the company’s mission and the change that we can make in people’s lives.
