Why is education important to you?
Since childhood, my parents have instilled the importance of education for success. Their sacrifices and commitment to my future and education have helped me continue to pursue my dreams and driven me to where I am now.  During college, I volunteered as a tutor at inner city schools and witnessed the disparities in our education system. This experience really opened my eyes and has driven my desire to make an impact and provide every child with the same opportunities I received. Education isn’t a privilege, and it should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status. Eliminating this gap is beneficial to the growth of these children, as well as our society as a whole.
