“The Surge Fellowship rejuvenated my passion for social justice. By challenging me to think critically about my leadership, the Fellowship empowered me to take more ownership of my development and take greater risks. I’ve learned how to lead as a woman of color and use my background as a catapult. The skills, confidence, and awareness I gained have rapidly influenced my career. I am grateful for my Surge experience and inspired by my cohort members. We, as a part of the movement, are going to change the world.”
