While finishing my undergrad I was presented the opportunity to work with children with autism and an special projects intern. The most rewarding part working with the kiddos was seeing their social skills blossom as they passed major milestones. While in my internship, I learned logistics and project planning. After these two experiences, I knew I wanted a happy medium of having a positive impact on children while working on the operations parts of things. GO gives me that opportunity to do just that.
Why public education?
I am a product of public education through my undergrad. Living in the Central Valley I was lucky enough to be in a school system that went above and beyond for their students in resources needed to be successful. I understand that advocating for those resources were essential to my growth, and now it is my turn to advocate for the next generation to receive the education they deserve.
