“As a first-generation immigrant and a product of public schools, I personally understand the vital role that education plays in shaping a child's future. Through my parents' personal sacrifices, I was fortunate enough to receive a quality education that directly led to my own success. By joining The Broad Residency, I now want to focus my energy and passion into creating that same opportunity to learn and succeed for all children.”
