Why I GO
"Growing up in Fresno, in a low-income single parent household, I know how instrumental a quality education was to me in finding a pathway out of poverty. I believe that every child regardless of socioeconomic status, race, location, or primary language deserves a quality education. Change is possible."

Why public education?

Public education has the opportunity to be a great equalizer, offering every child an equal opportunity to thrive. Our system currently operates to reinforce the inequalities that already exist in our society. I believe that change is possible, and that our community has both the power and the capacity to make schools work for all kids.

How I GO

As a part of the GO Team, I have the privilege of sharing family’s stories and creating a platform for their voices. Hearing stories of family’s struggles with obtaining quality education for their children is a constant reminder why I GO. I also play a role in helping families, educators, and community members access and understand data about the district’s progress so that can make educated decisions and advocate for themselves.

What are your vices?

Binge watching Star Trek. Live long and prosper!
