“My Surge Fellowship has been an amazing journey!  I have learned so much about myself, my cohort members, and about the educational landscape in the United States. The lessons ranged from change management to effective negotiation skills, but the greatest takeaway for me is always leading as your authentic self. There is much work to be done if we are to make education equitable for all; however, I feel confident in the capstone projects geared towards addressing solutions that each of us envisions.”
