“The Surge Fellowship will equip my cohort with the tools to grow individually, and increase our impact in the lives of young people in Chicago as a collective. Our students deserve a world in which education leaders come together to think critically and explore how best to serve them, especially in the wake of the pandemic and the challenges it has exacerbated. Professionally and personally, I longed to be part of a community of peers who will challenge and support one another along the journey of leadership development. The opportunity to join Surge comes at a point in my life when I am ready to learn from and connect with others on a deep level, and I am excited to become more impactful in my work as a result.”
