“The Surge Fellowship was a deeply transformational experience for me, both professionally and personally. The fellowship afforded me learnings and resources to grow in my path towards executive leadership, all the while, empowering me to embrace my story and voice. Before Surge, I was conditioned to see other leaders of color as competition. Today, because of the Surge Fellowship experience with my Surge brothers and sisters, I truly feel like I am supported by a community of beautiful, powerful, inspiring, real-life superheroes. I am honored to stand in community with Surge and continue the fight for our people.”
