Reflections on my Service
"For the first time in my life I felt a passion for education. This has driven me to build strong relationships with my students, seeking to understand their own stories and what drives them in life. Every day I show up to service, unsure of what to expect from my students, but knowing they each have their own light, we just have to figure out how to get it to shine brightest."
