“Growing up in a low-income area, I saw firsthand how a lack of resources and opportunities can affect students as they try to prepare for college. I feel strongly that every student deserves to have access to information and the necessary tools to succeed in order to allow their individual potential to flourish. I believe in working collaboratively with students to help them realize their interests and goals as well as identify their unique strengths and experiences that set them apart.”
