“Surge, to me, represents a transformative journey towards reclaiming agency for Black professionals navigating white supremacist culture. As a Surge Fellow, I aim to cultivate a supportive community aligned with my vision of prioritizing Black joy, creativity, and global awareness in education. I look forward to contributing to this caring community rooted in love and equity, fostering both personal and professional growth. ”
