I am running because I remember what it is like to be counted out and to feel invisible in school. I know, firsthand, the difference it makes when your school and teachers see you and your unique talents by developing them. Also, I do not have the luxury of forgetting where I came from; memories filled with long nights with very little food, utility disconnections in our home. These experiences impact the child when he/she arrives at the school and we need board members who get it! Since then, I've been committed to helping improve the lives of youth through education.
