I enjoy reading and listening to music. I was always a nerd in high school (I graduated 10/439) and did well in all of my studies. I went to the University of Texas at Austin and graduated in May 2009. I graduated from New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education & Human Development in May 2013. I received my Master of Arts in Educational Leadership, Politics & Advocacy. Educational policy, reform and parent/community interaction in education are all interests of mine.
