“Navigating education systems, I have faced the systemic inequities that widen opportunity gaps for low-income students of color. I went to public schools, where I felt devalued to the point of dropping out of high school. However, with the support of equity-minded allies, I managed to overcome challenges to become the first in my family to graduate from college. In college, my activism exponentially grew during my time as a student leader at UC Berkeley – where I led initiatives to increase access and inclusion for underrepresented students. These experiences have shaped my commitment to work in the racial and economic justice space.”
