The Magic Behind the Unicorn
Like the magical and wise unicorn, I hold a vast amount of wisdom from my professional, military, and educational experiences. Having presented to hundreds of teachers around the world, creating STEAM programs for public and private schools, as well as national and international companies, I have what one would consider a magic touch. The pivotal moment in my career happened in 2016 when I was selected to be a TEDEd fellow out of 300 international applicants. This honor catapulted me into a more diverse and global education network and set me on a magical journey to create equitable STEAM opportunities for minority students and help transform K-12 education institutions.
