“Surge represents a powerful catalyst for the transformative change I envision in education. This fellowship is not just an opportunity; it’s a call to action aligned with my commitment to creating access for every student in our Black/African-American and Latinx communities. I want to be part of the dynamic community of educators and advocates actively contributing to dismantling systemic barriers. I am excited to collaborate, innovate, and work towards a future where education is a vehicle for empowerment and every student can thrive.”
