I am grateful for being given such a wonderful opportunity to have lived in one of the most beautiful cities, Detroit! This city has helped deepen my passion for an equal quality education for all children no matter the zip code or class status.
Within my placement, I learned first hand the realities of our Detroit Public School students’, and many nights I went home crying because we have to do better. We have to give our children not just a chance to obtain an education, but a fair chance to be a child that falls in love with learning, that graduates from High School, and continues their education by attending a University.
We have to be a voice for our Students’. We have to fight for their education, and demand that literacy and academic success is a fundamental right for every child that enters the Public School system.
