Sara Martinez is a Family and Community Engagement in Education Specialist at Chicago Public Schools

“This is happening at the exact time it is supposed to. I’ve waited 6 years for this opportunity and I know that Surge will be the space that my soul needs to heal and prepare me to serve others. I hope to ground myself, meet other individuals who are trying to make a positive change in our communities and tap into my full potential and creativity. It is an honor to be accepted into this fellowship and I cannot wait to see the impact that our cohort will have in our communities.”
