“The Surge Academy represents the professional network of color that I have searched for my entire career. It reminds me that the work of uplifting students of color and ensuring they have the tools, resources, and support to succeed cannot be done alone. To me, Surge means that it is possible to find like-minded, community-driven, professionals that want to foster growth, change, and innovation in the education of marginalized youth. Moreover, Surge has shown me that my work to positively impact and inspire BIPOC youth will flourish when in alignment with an intentional and supportive community.”
