What are you curious about and what do you hope to explore during your time as a Scholar?

As an education policy nerd, I hope to further develop my passion for educational equity while searching for innovative outcomes to close the achievement gap. Beyond this, I hope to spend time expanding on interests in environmental science and archeology. I am most excited to utilize the Robertson Scholars Leadership Program resources to develop a passion for education in classrooms, to see the climate crisis up front and personal, and to re-engage with history at live archeological digs. With international resources and the support of two universities, I’m most curious to see how I utilize opportunity to discover the person I am.
