“I want to be a part of the Surge Fellowship movement because I wholeheartedly believe in the power of collective work and the power of like-minded individuals to affect significant change. I believe that it is important for our African-American and Latinx youth to see leaders who look like them, working together and fighting for educational access and advancement in order to cultivate strong leaders and even stronger communities.”
