“ Surge presents a curated opportunity for me to learn from other exceptional Black and Brown education leaders. By participating in the Surge fellowship, I hope to strengthen my executive skills and build community with a group of like-minded leaders who are just as passionate as myself about preparing students for life; especially, students from marginalized communities, often the most vulnerable youth in the city. I am incredibly humbled and excited about this opportunity to join the Surge fellowship. humanization to our group.”
