Ms. Education Non-profit
I care deeply about speaking truth to power and being my authentic self and empowering others to do the same by holding space for them. I practice this skill through theater classes and in my personal and professional relationships. I believe truly transformational leaders show their strength through vulnerability.

Big Life Wins:
I built strong relationships within the 354-person alumni community I am a part of.

The community self-organized 85 events over 4 months.
