I chose to continue working with Momentum Education because of my impactful experience as a 2020 Summer Fellow. Throughout the summer, I utilized my kills in teaching to assist with editing, updating, and creating parts of the curriculum. While working on this project, I expressed my interest in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) work and was presented the opportunity to create the DEI board for the organization. This experience granted me the opportunity to work with like-minded professionals with similar beliefs and interests in educating others and equipping them with necessary skills in diverse environments. It is my hope that we will make a positive impact on those we encounter so that they too will be of service to others.
