“For me, it isn’t enough to be a leader of color in education. It is critical that I unapologetically represent and serve Oakland’s students of color. I’m excited to connect and lead with a group of peers who are equally passionate about strengthening the landscape of education in Oakland in meaningful, creative, and transformative ways. The Surge Fellowship will allow me to dedicate my own perspective & expertise as I connect with local educational leaders of color to build on our shared experiences and connection to our communities.”
