The Broad Residency Class of 2017-2019
As a first-generation American, I was raised to believe in the power of education and the opportunities it provides. This belief drives me to pursue a career in education. After a decade of working in education, I can say without equivocation that my life’s work is to close opportunity gaps and ensure equitable outcomes for all students.
