The Broad Residency 2018-2020
Providing a quality education is a duty that we as a society owe to every child, irrespective of background, economic situation or zip code. Yet underprivileged children are being underserved by their local public school systems every day. These are the very kids who stand to benefit the most from a solid education, breaking the cycle of poverty that plagues this country. I want to devote my career in helping to close this opportunity gap and to ensure that every child gets a fair shot at realizing his or her full potential.
