Why I do this work: My grandparents immigrated to the U.S. having gone no further than eighth grade in their education. First they, and later my parents, worked hard to give me access to a quality education. I am very grateful for the privilege and opportunities my family afforded me and cannot think of a better way to pay it forward than by giving back to the education sector through my work with Bellwether.
