Co-curricular

Church plays an instrumental role in my life and serves as the foundation for problem-solving. At 14 years old, my twin and I started the first women's Greek Byzantine choir at our church (choirs are predominantly male). We wanted to promote a greater representation of women in the Church. I am Assistant Manager at Cutco, Coordinator for Youth Groups like Goya, and a regular volunteer for Feed My Starving Children.

My Dream Job

If there were no obstacles in my way, I  want to discover an inclusive curriculum that represents students of color. As future educator, I believe it is our duty to create a safe place for students to learn.  The education curriculum in elementary and secondary schools lacks authenticity, and I intend to be an educator that projects  authenticity and caringness to  children.
