How did you get involved with Children’s Scholarship Fund and the Young Leaders Board?
I was a volunteer with the East Harlem Tutorial Program for a time, and I heard about the Children’s Scholarship Fund as an organization that was also doing great work with young students in NYC. I looked into the organization to see if they had any opportunities to get involved, and the rest is history.
What do you hope to learn or gain from being a YL Member?

Why is education important to you?
Education is not only the most important component to professional success, it is the foundation for an examined life of inquiry, criticism, and self-knowledge.
