“I am committed to the mission of transforming urban education for youth and communities of color. Having witnessed firsthand the challenges and disparities within the education system, I am eager to be part of a program like Surge Academy, which empowers emerging education leaders of color. The program aligns with my values, providing me an opportunity, to develop my leadership skills and collaborate with a diverse group of like-minded professionals. I hope to gain additional knowledge and tools to drive positive change in education, especially in community color. ”
