"For the past two years I’ve served as a City Year Corps Member and Team Leader... I have loved the challenge and have been able to see first-hand the effect education makes on our young students. With Teach For America, I hope to continue to change the world, inspire and educate my students, and be a factor of closing the opportunity gap in America.”
