As a resident of Union City for over 25 years and 2 generations of family who have gone through the New Haven school district, I have the first-hand experience of what needs to be improved with our schools. The prosperity of every society is defined by the success of its youth. Strong educational foundation is the key to preparing our children for a brighter future. It would be an honor for me to serve on the school board and to make an impact in every student’s life.
Being the eldest of 4 children, I always found it my duty to share my experiences and mentor my siblings and young members of community with their schools and careers. I have strong passion for education and even stronger desire to see every student succeed regardless of their family or economic background. I have been involved in the community and several charities that focus on education for over a decade and now feel the desire to step up, get involved and give back to the same schools and community that made me who I am today.
I work at Cisco as a Program Manager, implementing many diversity and educational initiatives. I intend to bring these in New Haven Unified Schools. As a young professional, I believe it is my turn to give back to the community I cherish so much. My professional background in Silicon Valley and community service has prepared me for this very responsibility to serve our diverse community. I am committed to collaborating with all stakeholders to ensure that we create more learning opportunities for our students, empower our teachers and engage our parents.
I am one of the most recent graduate and a product of the New Haven school district which gives me a great advantage to connect with students and teachers on a personal level and understand the opportunities of improvements. I will bring unique and creative solutions to schools’ current issues. I kindly seek your support on November 8th.
Any and all contributions welcome!
