One of the greatest contributions to society is a positive influence that can inspire a child to become the best version of themselves. For me, teaching students that look, sound but most importantly feel the way I do in the world today is an opportunity of a lifetime. I thrive to give these students hope by showing them an authentic version of myself and how I came to be, growing up in the same neighborhoods as they do. As an educator, my impact in the school is limitless because our students are the future. I take full advantage of my privileges in order to pay it forward to the next generation of leaders.
